Dai Henwood


We are over the moon to have Dai Henwood speaking at this year’s event. Dai is one of New Zealand’s best known and loved comedians. Born and raised in Wellington, Dai has toured Melbourne, Edinburgh, Britain, and Australia.

He’s performed the sell-out shows “The Hot Stepper” and “Champagne Table Tennis” at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival and featured at The Comedy Store in Tokyo. As popular on-screen as off-screen, Dai’s success on C4TV’s ‘Insert Video Here’ led to another cult classic, ‘Roll the Dai’ on C4TV, making Dai a household name across New Zealand. He’s won numerous awards, including Best New Face (TV2 Pulp Comedy), the prestigious TV2 Billy T Award, and the coveted Fred Award at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival.

If you can’t wait to see Dai at TEDxChristchurch 2013: Curiouser and Curiouser, catch him each Friday on TV3’s 7 Days, visit his website, or follow him on Twitter: @daihenwood.
