Summary

Nick Rado is a multi-award winning writer, MC and stand-up comedian, and has recently excelled as an engaging, comedic presenter on such shows as the Night Watchmen and the Narrow World of Sports for Fox Sports in Australia and the Crowd Goes Wild in New Zealand.

Nick is a regular guest panellist but also the head writer for over 250 episodes for TV3's award-winning comedy show '7 Days’ and is the only comic to win the NZ Comedy Guild Award for 'Best Comedy MC' five times, and he is also the 2019 winner of Best Male Comedian.
