Pio Terei

Pio’s numerous appearances as an actor, comedian, musician and radio and television host over the last few decades have established him as one of New Zealand’s most popular and personable entertainers and MCs.  His starring roles in locally produced shows such as Off the Grid, It’s in the Bag, Tangaroa, Are We There Yet?, My Kind of Kai, Intrepid Journeys, How’s Life, Spin Doctors & Ma tuku have made him a familiar face with an appeal that spans generations, this further cemented by his titular role as the host of successful talk show Terei Tonight, deservedly Maori TV’s highest rating show of late. He has twice won Best Comedy Performer at the NZ Film and TV Awards, and was befittingly nominated for TV Personality of the Year at those same awards. Pio's many years of experience behind the scenes as a producer, company director and programme creator for Pipi Productions and 4 Winds Films has given him valuable business insights and built on his ability to relate to a wide variety of audiences. Pio is a passionate Positive Parenting advocate and spokesperson. He has delivered live parenting shows with the Parenting Place around the country for over a decade, and continues to do this to this day. Whilst Pio has certainly had an enviable career in the entertainment industry, he has built alongside this a very successful career as Speaker and MC. His very wide scope of interest and expertise, and easy and relatable manner is highly sought after by Government, Industry and Community groups alike. Pio was deservedly appointed a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the 2012 New Year’s Honours List.
