A Complete Idiot’s Guide to New ZealandA Complete Idiot’s Guide to New Zealand

Cartoon version of a New Zealand landscape with mountains, road signs of a Kiwi bird and wave and a floating Rugby ball and sheep.

In this insider’s guide to his eccentric homeland, award-winning Kiwi comedian Sully O’Sullivan answers all the questions about New Zealand you didn’t know to ask in the first place….

Like why did we almost change our national flag to a drawing of a bird with lasers for eyes?

Are Kiwi Fruit really just Chinese Gooseberries in witness protection?

Is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu honestly the longest place-name in the world? Or did my cat walk across my keyboard?

And where actually is New Zealand?…. Given we keep getting left off some seriously important maps.

Find out the answers to these questions and more, all wrapped in an hour of ‘Quintessentially Kiwi comedy’ (NZ Herald).
