Jon Bridges MC

After a career of over 20 years in media, Jon Bridges is currently the producer and regular guest of the award-winning TV3 comedy programme '7 Days' and is also a panel leader on the hit comedy 'Would I Lie To You?'.

He writes a blog on and his book “Easy Rider – A Kiwi’s Guide to Cycling” will be published by Penguin in late 2012. After getting a Masters degree, Jon began writing and performing on the TV3 sketch show 'Away Laughing', then enjoyed six years presenting and writing for the ground-breaking youth programme 'IceTV'. As a producer he has made 'The Panel', 'Snatch our Booty', 'Choice Cuts', and 'Sportzah'. As a writer/director he has worked on 'Amazing Extraordinary Friends' and 'Secret Agent Men'.

Over the years he has published three books, written a regular humour column for the Listener and had a four-year stint as breakfast host on the much-missed Channel Z radio station.

Jon is a much loved comedy personality and TV presenter and a superb choice for your next MC!

Jon recently MC’ed for two Regional House of the Year Gala Dinners for the Registered Master Builders Association of New Zealand. These are the premiere events for the year for each region so it is important to get a professional MC with a sense of humour. Jon fulfilled this role exceptionally well. He had a great balance of professionalism and comedy whilst always remembering to honour those who were award members. Jon was well prepared, very easy to work with and his relaxed demeanour meant the events went off without a hitch and were enjoyed by all who attended. He was receptive to all ideas we had and was happy to offer some suggestions when asked. I would not hesitate to recommend Jon to others

Jon was a fantastic MC, and absolutely hilarious! He did quite a bit of research on us and on the guest speakers themselves which he wove into the MC brief I gave him, along with some very funny quips. Feedback from attendees has been very positive with people saying he really livened up the ceremony.
