Favourite comedian returns for 151st show

Comedian and television personality Te Radar will again compere the Warkworth A&P Lifestyle Show and says his enthusiasm for the event remains undiminished. Having grown up on a dairy and beef farm in the Waikato, Te Radar especially enjoys the cattle shows and other animal events.

“I just like people who take pride in their animals and make the effort to bring them along,” he says.

“It’s also nice to see a lot of young people coming through – there’s a lot of young judges and handlers around the place continuing the tradition.”

Having compered for the last five years, Te Radar also enjoys catching up with familiar faces and chatting to show-goers, animal breeders, sheep shearers and stallholders.

“It’s a very pleasant atmosphere and very convivial. And it’s also a great time for the kids who get to participate in various bits and pieces, and enjoy the rides,” he says.

Te Radar also makes a point of sampling the local food and beverages, and checking out what’s on offer on all the stalls.

“It’s never too early to start shopping for Christmas,” he laughs.

He says his affection for the show has translated to an affection for the Warkworth area in general and he would actually like to move up here one day from Henderson.
