Host: Jeremy Corbett
Jeremy Corbett is a handsome 6’2” Leo who likes potatoes.
He's been doing the breakfast show on MORE FM for 18 years!!! He is one of the Godfathers of New Zealand stand up comedy, which he’s been doing for over 20 years, and he’s been our host for over 130 episodes. He’s scared of ever missing one in case he gets replaced.
He resides with his lovely wife, Megan, and their dog, Nugget, in the leafy yet controversial suburb of Mt Eden. Many people argue that it’s not really a Mount, but more of a hill. Either way it’s a volcano, so the shadow of death stalks his every breathing moment. Luckily, like Jeremy, Mt Eden is dormant.
