David Farrier


Known for his reliably offbeat sign-off, David Farrier joined at TV3 in 2006, direct from a Bachelor of Communication Studies at AUT in Auckland. As entertainment reporter for late night show Nightline, his interviews ranged from Hollywood stars to the sublimely ridiculous. In 2014 he joined Rhys Darby as the reporter on mockumentary show Short Poppies. Farrier left TV3 and concentrated on a documentary about the dark underside of competitive tickling, which he directed with Dylan Reeve. Tickled was invited to the Sundance Film Festival in early 2016; it proceeded to win sales, lawsuits and widespread acclaim.

That's why I love journalism, you never know what you'll be doing tomorrow. David Farrier in a 19 December 2013 NZ Woman's Weekly interview
