Elliot Wengler promises energetic and engaging performances wherever he goes. The former UEA Headlights Comedy Society President, NaSTA Comedy Producer Award-Nominee (2014) and Livewire Award-Nominee (2014) has gigged up and down the country with storytelling and energetically delivered surreal observations at over 250 gigs since 2012.
At university, he starred in, wrote for, and directed two Sketch Revues (2013: ‘The Great Showcase Caper’, supporting Late Night Gimp Fight – in which Elliot also performed a stand-up slot to 300 people at UEA’s LCR – see below, 2014: Your Ad Here), produced and presented an award-nominated Breakfast Show on Livewire1350, produced a BBC Voices film about local hero, Robert Turner, and served as UEA:TV’s General Secretary. He has also appeared on Shoreditch Radio in summer 2015, at Speen Festival for a Radio4 pilot in 2015, the Lewisham Fringe in 2015, and with the KDC Theatre in 2016. In 2016, he brings his debut Edinburgh show with Farhan Mitha to Edinburgh; Life Lessons.
‘A star in the making.’ – Ian Warr
‘Funny. Witty. Extremely engaging.’ – Chortle Forums
‘Wengler’s compering and stand-up was a real treat on the night, varying from truly funny stories to exaggerated interaction with the audience that left other members howling in their seats (tip: don’t be a latecomer). His enthusiasm turned infectious and set the bar high for the night.’ – Concrete-Online.co.uk (Review of The Season Finale)
‘Elliot Wengler offered proficient compèring. He created a comfortable back-and-forth atmosphere with the audience and his ability to conjure up even the most obscure reference to 2008 popstars was pretty enviable.’ – The Tab
‘A solid act with a great range of material. Elliot has a greatly likeable stage presence. A sure booking for an opening, closing and MC spots.’ – Joe Frost, the Birdcage Comedy Cabaret Promoter
‘An honourable mention for Elliot Wengler… also his priest character in the St. Budget’s sketch was one of the funniest of the night.’ – Concrete-Online.co.uk (Review of Your Ad Here, directed by Wengler)
