Henry comes to town
Prepare to be
Love him or loathe him, outspoken journalist, radio and television presenter Paul Henry is coming to town. Henry, who famously resigned in 2010 from his presenting job on TV One’s Breakfast show after being suspended over controversial comments he made about an Indian politician and Governor-General Sir Anand Satyanand, will host a meet and greet evening at Edgewater Resort on December 6. The event was part of a nationwide book release tour for his latest scribe Outraged. The humour-themed book was a collection of short stories – ‘‘some outrage him, some will outrage you and others will outrage everybody’’. Henry does not hold back his thoughts in the book – which was only edited by his lawyers. The portrait of Henry on the cover also has a controversial link. It was painted by Tim Patch, aka Pricasso, who uses his nether regions to create his masterpieces instead of using more common art instruments such as a paintbrush. Henry was set to return to New Zealand television screens next year with his own show The Paul Henry Show after it was announced long-running Nightline would cease to air. The book was Henry’s second after writing best seller memoir What Was I Thinking. A donation from night will be made to Wanaka St John.
