Pre­pare to be

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - By CHE BAKER

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.
