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 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 Arafrat under the watchful eye of gun-toting Palestinian soldiers, and being stung by a scorpian (in a rather awkward place). His passion for and knowledge of the untold stories of New Zealand history inspired his critically-acclaimed 2017 series Te Radar’s Chequered Past.

He boasts some of New Zealand’s most prestigious entertainment awards having won a Billy T Award for excellence in comedy, a New Zealand International Comedy Festival Award for Best Local Show, and a Qantas Film & Television Award for Best Information/Lifestyle Programme, among many other accolades and nominations. His intelligence and wit make him extremely versatile, with knowledge across a wide range of areas - no matter the format, Te Radar will make it a show to remember.

I have nothing but good feedback for Te Radar, he was exceptional to work with. He was very open to edits to the original script, worked with each team to make sure their intros were the way they wanted them and brought such an upbeat mood that he made the whole experience better for everyone.
