Jono and Ben MC/Entertainer Profile


Entertainment Pioneers, Hospitality Experts: Dynamic Entertainers, Skilled Hosts

Jono and Ben are a hotter Kiwi duo than mince and cheese in a service station pie! These two best mates teamed up in 2011 in a bid to entertain the nation on both TV and radio and they haven’t looked back since. Their TV show Jono and Ben ran for 7 years and won New Zealand’s Best Comedy at the NZ TV awards. Starting out as a late night show, Jono and Ben quickly became a massive hit and moved to the primetime spot of 7:30 PM. The duo are also multi-award winning radio hosts with their top-rating afternoon drive shows, first on The Rock FM and then on The Edge FM with their mate Sharyn. Currently, they’re the hosts of The Hit’s popular Breakfast Show.

Jono and Ben love having a laugh (often at each other's expense) and never take themselves too seriously. Their mad antics have seen them attempting news-grabbing stunts like sailing a bouncy castle cross Lake Taupo, driving a bumper car for 30 hours straight and watching the Deadpool 2 movie trailer non-stop until Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds facetimed them – he eventually did! They have also been lucky enough to hang out with some of the world’s biggest movie stars like Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Dwayne Johnson and Will Smith.

These typical Kiwi jokesters have also proved themselves to be awesome at public speaking. Their easy-going and hilarious characters have seen them host the prestigious Vodafone NZ Music Awards twice, as well as MC a number of corporate awards, ceremonies and functions! These two are loved everywhere they go and bring a special kind of fun to each and every event they work on.

Amanda Denholm | Senior Event Coordinator

Jono + Ben were an absolute godsend, stepping in at the last minute when we had an MC cancel for the Site Safe Evening of Celebration. They put so much work into re-writing the script they were given and injecting their own personalities into the event, while working closely with the theme of the event - health and safety in the construction industry. From delivering a Malteser via measuring tape, to presenting one guest a road cone to wear as a hat, they approached the event with the humour you would expect from this duo, whilst respectfully celebrating the graduates and award winners on their achievements. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jono + Ben for audiences with a sense of humour.
