Tony Holden

Producer, Director

Tony Holden's producing and directing career spans generations of classic Kiwi comedy, from A Week of It, Gliding On, The Billy T James Show, to Spin Doctors. CEO of production company Comedia Pictures since 1985, Holden has also spent four years as TVNZ's manager of commissioning and production.  

No one believes me when I tell them we made over 40 half hours of comedy a year in the 80s, and screened them at 8pm on a Monday night; no wonder we got better at making comedy in those days! Tony Holden
