Globe gig for geeky Guy, mas­ter of dead­pan line

The Tribune (NZ) - - COMMUNITY INFORMATION | WHAT'S ON - $30 tick­ets for the June 11, 7pm Globe per­for­mance are avail­able on­line through Eventfinda

Guy Wil­liams – the awk­wardly an­noy­ing try-hard geeky guy on Jono& Ben, and af­ter­noon co-host with Sharyn and Clint on The Edge Af­ter­noons is back in Palmer­ston North on Satur­day night.

He must have fallen in love with the place – he was only here in March 2015, ap­pear­ing at The Dark Room for You Can Sense the Des­per­a­tion – a show that quickly sold out.

Em­bold­ened by this, the mas­ter of the dead­pan in­ap­pro­pri­ate com­ment now wants to sell out The Globe for his new show, Started From The Top. That’s the short ti­tle – the full han­dle is Started From The Top And Con­tin­ued At The Top, Has Had A Very Priv­i­leged Up­bring­ing Now We’re Here. Prob­a­bly Un­der­achiev­ing If Any­thing.

That’s de­spite no longer be­ing New Zealand’s Sex­i­est Male Tele­vi­sion Per­son­al­ity, a ti­tle be­stowed upon him by TV Guide in 2014. When you start at the top, there are but a few op­tions left.

Any­way, ac­cord­ing to Guy, SFTT aims to ad­dress gen­der and racial priv­i­lege in con­tem­po­rary New Zealand.

‘‘The key word is ‘aims’, no re­funds. That was a joke. I prob­a­bly would give you a re­fund if you re­ally wanted it,’’ he quips awk­wardly.
