Alan Brough's Biography

New Zealand born Alan Brough is a 6’4” Sagittarian who enjoys Pina Coladas. He also has been performing for as long as he can remember.


Alan’s first ever role was as the titular Drummer Boy in The Little Drummer Boy. (Though halfway through a searing drum solo he stopped and waved at his Mum and Dad.)

After failing to attend university enough to be officially considered a student, Alan worked in Wellington and Auckland as an actor, working predominantly in live Theatre speakers. For a time, he was also New Zealand's most famous transvestite due to his appearance on a series of butter commercials as a very ordinary looking drag queen called Marge.

Alan moved to Australian in 1995 and has worked on television shows such as ‘Kath and Kim’, films including ‘The Craic’ and ‘Bad Eggs’ and a national radio show on Triple M with Mick Molloy and Robyn Butler called ‘Toughlove’. His involvement ranged from writing, directing, acting and stand up comedy.

It is on the television program ‘Spicks and Specks’ though, where Alan really found his calling. The show combines all Alan's great loves; comedy, music trivia, regular wages and nice shirts. After seven years and 277 episodes, Alan alongside fellow team leader Myf Warhurst and host Adam Hills, decided to call it quits, airing their last episode on November 23, 2011 to an audience of over 1.5 million viewers. The team then commenced a live show tour of Australia in an effort to say farewell to their many fans. The tour ended in Melbouorne where they played to over 20,000 people.

In 2012 Alan moved into a hosting role for the satirical political quiz named ‘Armchair Pollies’, live on stage in Melbourne.

His most recent exploit saw him take on the role of Baron Bomburst in the stage musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang touring Sydney and Melbourne through 2012 – 2013.
