Te Radar


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’s story-telling is second to none. He has curiosity, depth and a warm and engaging style. His diverse talents mean he is highly informed across a wide field; agricultural, engineering, science, arts, media, medical, environmental and academic – his versatility is astonishing. He is able to pivot in a number of directions with ease and authenticity. Te Radar is the kind of front man who will always deliver a memorable performance for any production.

Callaghan Innovation - November 2020

Radar was a fabulous MC, naturally taking the audience on the journey and filling the gaps well, and usually with laughter.
