Tama may be one of the youngest comedians on the comedy scene, but is definitely one to watch. After doing stand-up for less than 2 years he managed to sell out his award winning solo show ‘Fresher’, as well as headlined shows in Dunedin and Christchurch.
Tama’s comedic style is unique and captivates audiences with his youth and energy on stage. Blending together his love for storytelling and music, his performances are never dull and always leave the crowd wanting more. Tama has also managed to receive top University recognition from Otago University for his talents in Stand-Up comedy.
