Tim Batt

Comedian, Presenter

Tim Batt is best known internationally for hit podcast The Worst Idea Of All Time, which he co-hosted with fellow comedian Guy Montgomery. The conceit: they review the same movie each week for a year. On-screen, the ex radio DJ fronted political chat show Banter on Duke, and co-hosted The Late Night Big Breakfast. Batt has been both a writer and guest on 7 Days, and co-created a number of 48 Hours Film Competition entries, including 2011 winner The Child Jumpers, and The Fucket List, which later became a web series. Off the success of Worst Idea, he started homegrown podcast network Little Empire Podcasts.

With podcasts, you're still just in your living room but your audience automatically is planet earth. Tim Batt on his favourite creative medium, in a 2019 interview for TV series Funny As: The Story of New Zealand Comedy
