Guy Williams is a funny sort. He’s on telly and billboards and all sorts of things these days, but given his comedic timing, charm, and goofy-dork grin in person, he’s almost wasted on the screen.

Guy Williams is a funny sort. He’s on telly and billboards and all sorts of things these days, but given his comedic timing, charm, and goofy-dork grin in person, he’s almost wasted on the screen.

Before I arrived at the the Hawke Sea Scout Hall (!) in Cox’s Bay to see his comedy show ‘Self Absorbed, Terrible Person,’ I looked at his adorable little Wikipedia page. Turns out TV Guide named him New Zealand’s sexiest male TV personality. I thought he was more oddly cute. “Oddly cute” was certainly far more appropriate for a Sea Scout Hall gig than “Filthy sexual, oh my god, I want to climb him like a tree” (which is how a prim colleague of mine describes him).

Well, he’s not just a pretty face. He’s dang good at anecdotes, nerdy little lists, and ad-libbing some killer three-liners. Awkward personal observations don’t come much funnier than his, and his brother Paul Williams making his own guest appearance at the start presenting “some thoughts” set us up for a hilarious hour.

Guy Williams may be self-absorbed, but he’s not very terrible at all. He’s bloody funny.

For laughs thick and fast, go see Guy Williams performing at the Hawke Sea Scout Hall from Monday 28th April every night right through to Thursday 01st May, and on Friday 02nd May he wraps it up at the Freeman’s Bay Community Hall. See more gigs here.

Whether you want to climb him like a tree, are a fan of seeing him on the telly-fillums, or you just want to go to a hilarious show that feels like hanging out with your dorky, funny friend, Guy Williams won’t disappoint.

    Nice .
    Sadly though , I live in South Otago . In South Otago the funniest things we get to see are other South Otago-ites at the supermarket .
    We don’t have that there culture down round these parts . Besides , who needs it ? Not like you can eat it , drive it or shag it ? Most of the Halls way down here are deserted , rotting and falling down . As in the case of our very own War Memorial Hall . The Council have come up with a plan for the Hall . And I’m not kidding here . Their plan is simple yet effective . Let it fall quietly into disrepair then when it’s gone past it’s rubicon , pull it down . Guy Williams would find that hilarious I bet .
    ( I wonder if anyone has asked the Council what they’ve done with the 32 k a year collected in Rates to repair and maintain that same hall that’s had one paint job over it’s permanent materials walls in the last 23 years ?? And prior to that , nothing since the 1960’s ???? )
    I came up with an idea to fix that particular conundrum . Have a state funded cultural attache to boldly go where no cultural event has ever gone before thus ram style , art and elegance down the throats of the Great Blue Tide of Ignorance and Destruction that is the National Party’s legacy within the farming hinterlands here .
    I’d kill a cow for a chance to see a comedy show here . I’m very envious .
    I’m selling up . I’m on the move . I think I might come up to Auckland ? If you can’t beat em , join em . I can bring a slab of cow flesh for the barbi ?
