Jono and Ben

Profile

TV and Radio Personality, MC, Speaker, Writers

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.

RMB House of the Year National Final 2019

Jono & Ben MC’d the House of the Year national final. I was really impressed with the level of professionalism they have and they brought to the show. They really are masters of their craft!

The moment I met with them I felt instantly at ease, they wanted to get to know us and our brand to ensure they delivered what we needed too to ensure a great show. They customized the show to suit and it went down a treat.

Choosing MCs for next year is going to be hard as they will be a hard act to follow with this crowd. These two are a class act that I hope to work with again in the future!
