Te Radar

Profile

MC, Satirist, Speaker, Writer, TV Personality

With a string of awards, including the country’s highest accolades for television and comedy, Te Radar is one of New Zealand’s most recognised entertainers and presenters. He has an extensive career in documentary making, writing, stage and screen directing, as well as being a celebrated comedian and satirist. Some of the remarkable adventures Te Radar has embarked on include diving with sharks, plunging into the frozen Ross Sea, interviewing Yassar Arafat under the watchful eye of gun-toting Palestinian soldiers, and being stung by a scorpion (in a rather awkward place). His passion for and knowledge of the untold stories of New Zealand history inspired his critically-acclaimed 2017 TVNZ series Te Radar's Chequered Past.

A natural raconteur, Te Radar is a sought-after keynote speaker, awards host, MC and moderator. His diverse talents mean he can host events across a wide range of sectors; agricultural, engineering, science, arts, media, medical, environmental and academic – his versatility is astonishing. The ideal host for panel discussions, onstage interviews and all-round MC duties, Te Radar’s performance is always erudite, witty and well-informed, no matter the forum or format.

Waipa Speed Dating - April 2021

We recently booked Te Radar to host our first ever Councillor Speed Dating evening in Waipā. He made the evening so much fun for everyone who participated and I’ve had nothing but positive feedback. We’d love to book him again for events in the future and really appreciate his support to kick start an engaging new way to connect with our community.
