Happy Hour - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2014

Happy Hour evokes the spirit of old Kiwi light entertainment shows featuring Māori entertainers like Billy T James, Prince Tui Teka and Howard Morrison. Presenters Temuera Morrison, Keisha Castle-Hughes and Thane Kirby compere a live show combining music, comedy and special guests. House band The Modern Māori Quartet perform several songs, and invite Annie Crummer onstage for a surprising cover of "New Zealand's best karaoke song": 'For Today'. Morrison introduces a new soap starring his legendary character Dr Ropata, and Miriama McDowell and Cohen Holloway feature in a sketch about warring gang members.
