Biography
PAUL EGO’s first gig was in London in 1994 and upon returning to NZ in 1995 he soon became a regular sight on the pro-comedy skyline.
In 2000 PAUL EGO was given... the BILLY T AWARD for outstanding commitment to NZ Comedy and in 2001 he was announced as the new host of the TV show PULP COMEDY, taking over from Mike King.
PAUL EGO started his breakfast radio career 11 years ago when he joined the KIM & CORBETT SHOW on Auckland’s MoreFM. During the 6 years Paul worked with Jeremy Corbett and Kim Adamson he could be heard as many of the shows regular characters including Bob & Noelene Bond and Steve Pervin Crocodile Humper.
In 2006 PAUL EGO was poached by THE ROCK for the MORNING RUMBLE Breakfast Show. Following his arrival ‘The Rumble’ went on to win ‘BEST ENTERTAINMENT SHOW Metropolitan’ at the NZ Radio Awards for the next 3 years in a row. This of course could be just a coincidence. (Paul left his breakfast radio job in March 2011 so that he could get to know his family again in the mornings)
PAUL EGO is now well known as the Captain of Team 1 on the top-rating TV show ’7DAYS’. The NZ Herald recently had this to say about Ego on the show: “The MVP of the 7Days squad must be Ego. The unfeasibly tall comedian has proved to be the shows quickest and often dirtiest wit. He really should have his own fanclub”
PAUL EGO is 45 years old and lives on Aucklands North Shore with his beautiful wife Janine and their delightful yet destructive sons Gabriel & Isaac.

PAUL EGO REVIEWS / QUOTES
"It’s said that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, but this man can take it and make it high art. He had me laughing 'til I cried!” (kiwicomedy.co.nz)
“Paul Ego's set went down especially well with the crowd and made up most of the evening's entertainment. His fast pace, sarcasm and laid back style delighted the audience." (City Voice Wellington)
"Entertaining, insightful and has a terrific rapport with his audience"
(NZ Herald)
“Paul Ego must be the most relaxed comedian on the circuit. He has enormous charm and a lovely mellow voice, especially when he pays tribute to The Crooners, singing a catalogue of diseases in the style of Dean Martin that is as sweet as any love song”
(NZ Herald)
