Ed Caruthers is known for his stacatto delivery and a stratospheric gags-per-minute ratio. His one-liners usually bear no relation towards each other and bounce around a myriad of topics, from religion to filth to Z-grade celebrities to his slightly troubled childhood. All is delivered with a concise and delicate choice of words betraying little trace of emotion other than a subtle hint of pure evil.
He sets himself the goal of bettering his peer/rival/enemy comedians by outdoing them in terms of frequency and quality of gags, as measured in terms of audience eruptions.
He is appearing in the 2008 NZ International Comedy Festival alongside fellow gags-addict Graeme Rowe in As Many Jokes As We Can Get Away With, which runs at the Comedy Underground from 30 April to 3 May.
