Hosted by Oscar Kightley, AotearoHA was the first of an occasional series of TV3 stand-up comedy specials. This one features all performers of Māori or Polynesian heritage. The topical humour of 2007 serves as a time capsule— the controversial 'anti-smacking' bill and discus champion Beatrice Faumuina both get two mentions. Among the list of performers are Gish showcasing his musical comedy, Irene Pink revealing the problem with English doctors, and Vela Manusaute on the differences between Palagi and Polynesian culture. Also performing are Andre King, Ben Hurley, Fig Jam and Bundy.
I grew up with a lot of white people man. And I'm not just saying this because I want to be on TV3, hell no.– Comedian Vela Manusaute on TV3's audience demographic
