Sketch Comedy meets Morning News!

Sketch Comedy meets Morning News!

Morning News Zealand is a current affairs show, brought to you every morning by Wayne Downdeboat and Anne Kerr. Times are tough in the world of breakfast entertainment, with word that the show's producer Jay Vernon is looking to replace them with hit new show Revelation. Could this be the end of Morning News Zealand? Or can Wayne, Anne, and their team of enthusiastic journalists improve their ratings and save the show?

Join Wayne Downdeboat and Ann Kerr for an evening of sketch and musical comedy as they host a live recording of New Zealand's favourite Morning Show.

Featuring Simon Leary, Kate Schrader, Jennifer O'Sullivan, Wiremu Tuhiwai, Steven Youngblood, Sara Kidd, Thom Adams, Lucy Tyndall, Sam Smith and Gemma Lowther.


Morning News Zealand is a reunion show for seven of the cast of ten. They met in the Otago University Capping Show and performed together for over five years. They moved to Wellington where they got jobs, wives, husbands and mortgages. Despite being grownups the passion for being silly and writing comedy sketches stayed strong, so they teamed up with three of Wellington's funniest improvisers to make a brand new show. There will be interviews, dancing, robots, cats, videos, pirates, politics, walruses, music, and a great night of fun.

So sit back and kick off your shoes, as Lower Hutt's top journalists bring you the news!

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
