Robbie Ellis

I am a comedy songmaker, music director, composer and broadcaster.

- I've performed my songs at Arts Festival Dunedin, the NZ International Comedy Festival and the New York Funny Songs Festival.

- I've been a music director for musical theatre, improv and sketch, working all across New Zealand and Australia as well as for Chicago's legendary comedy theatre The Second City.

- I held the University of Otago Mozart Fellowship and my compositions have been played by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, Saxcess, the Jade String Quartet, and more of New Zealand's finest musicians.

- You might know my voice as a former presenter on RNZ Concert and a current presenter on 98.7 WFMT Chicago.

- I do a great variety of things.
