Mikey Havoc


Mikey Havoc — real name Michael Roberts — burst onto TV screens in the company of regular sidekick Jeremy Wells, on magazine show HavocHavoc and Newsboy's Sell-out Tour and numerous follow-ups.  The shows saw him blending genres, mixing interviews and humour and doing the occasional dance move. Roberts began as a bFM radio DJ, and lead singer of band Push Push, before his first gig as TV host on the short-lived local version of MTV. He has also hosted reprised versions of Top Town and Treasure Island.

Monumental television doesn't come necessarily from planning. It's right place, right time, right approach and then delivering it in a way that nobody else does. Mike Havoc, in an interview with the Sunday Star-Times
