ScreenTalk Short: Jon Gadsby

Interview – 2018

The late Jon Gadsby headlined some of New Zealand's most iconic TV comedies. Gadsby first teamed up with his long-time friend David McPhail for 1970s comedy breakthrough A Week of It, before launching series McPhail and Gadsby. Gadsby also penned rural comedy Rabbiter's Rest. In this ScreenTalk Short, he talks about the tension of making A Week of It, and the show's famous "Jeez Wayne" line, Robert Muldoon's surprising reaction to being satirised, worrying feedback for McPhail and Gadsby and Letter to Blanchy, and innoculations for an Intrepid Journey to Mayanmar.
