Leigh Hart

Actor, Presenter, Director

Since debuting on TV's SportsCafe in 1996 as an Olympic snail trainer, comedian Leigh Hart has donned moustaches, speedos and a variety of serious journalistic expressions. Post SportsCafe, Hart made and presented multiple seasons of Moon TV  — two of them nominated for NZ Screen awards — plus Leigh Hart's Mysterious Planet. He went on to co-present web show Late Night Big Breakfast, with Jason Hoyte.

The biggest challenge has probably been certain key bits of furniture getting sold from under us mid-show. The show is filmed in a Target furniture store. It's hard to keep continuity and is confusing for the guests. Leigh Hart on making talk show Late Night Big Breakfast in a furniture store, in a July 2014 Stuff interview
