Laura Daniel is probably the most likable comic I’ve seen on stage in some time. It’s a personality characteristic that is often neglected by comics, but for Laura I’m pretty sure it’s natural and just down to a charismatic, charming and funny persona.
“Don’t let his internet celebrity deceive” says part of Neel’s promo material, and I have to confess I didn’t actually know who Neel was before I went and saw his show.
Hello friends, I’m not going to be writing a whole lot of these pieces but I thought I’d dip my toe back into the punditry land, if only for a brief swim.

So the John Key + All Blacks love affair has been going on a while. This isn’t news.
Last week I spent five nights in Rarotonga. It was my first time having an “island” holiday. The closest I’d come was a week in Phuket. It was not what I expected.
In a Kiwiblog post that seems to have been written by David mashing his fists against the keyboard, Farrar argues that Labour’s “week of headlines on blaming the Chinese for Auckland house prices has come to nought” (source).
