Andre KingAndre King is a stand up comedian from Auckland New Zealand and a veteran of the NZ comedy circuit.

That role as “Johnny Green – Campaign Manager” also secured  a New Zealand Comedy Guild Award for “Best Comedy Performance on NZ Television” 2005 and he won the award again in 2008 for Season Two of “The Pretender” against stiff competition from Dai Henwood, Cory Gonzales Macuer and Rhys Dharby.

Andre King is currently involved in the Victor Roger Play “The Village People” and is set to play the iconic Billy T James role of “The Tainuia Kid” in the musical stage version of “Came a Hot Friday” . He has also just finished working on Season one of the New Zealand version of “The Real Hustle” and has been approached about working on Season 3 of The Pretender in 2011.
