Free laughs for give­away win­ner

Whanganui Chronicle - - News - Liz Wylie con­tes­tant Kerry Rang­inui casts an ex­pert eye over the Fash­ion in the Field con­tenders at the races in Whanganui.

The win­ner of the Whanganui Chron­i­cle ticket give­away to 7 Days Live in Whanganui is Jac­qui Hiroti.

Al­most 60 en­tries were re­ceived for the dou­ble pass, with Hiroti be­ing drawn the win­ner.

“My hus­band Mort and I re­ally wanted to go but it is a bit of an ex­pense this close to Christ­mas,” she said.

“I said I would only go if I won the free pass — and I did.”

Hiroti watches 7 Days ev­ery week and co­me­dian Dai Hen­wood is her favourite.

“It’s partly be­cause he is about the same height as me but I love the things he comes up with.”

She is look­ing for­ward to the quick-fire stand-up seg­ment of the live show, which each of the seven vis­it­ing co­me­di­ans will de­liver at Wan­ganui Opera House.

Hiroti will also be cel­e­brat­ing her birth­day next week and says the win will make it an es­pe­cially happy one. Al­most every­one en­ter­ing our com­pe­ti­tion cor­rectly an­swered that 7 Days reg­u­lar Ben Hur­ley grew up in Haw­era.
