Robbie Nicol will be speaking on Thursday at Massey as part of the National Issues Panel Discussion.

Robbie Nicol is the political satirist ‘White Man Behind A Desk’ and winner of the 2015 NZ Web Fest’s Best Web Show. With hundreds of thousands of views on both Facebook and YouTube, Robbie has worked with collaborators such as Robyn Malcolm, John Campbell, and Finnius Teppett to create informative comedy videos and live performances.

In 2017 Nicol won the New Zealand International Comedy Festival’s Best Newcomer from Wellington and it produced six sell-outs while it ran at Bat Theatre during the festival.

Nicol has been called the ‘kiwi John Oliver’ by the Sunday Star Times, and he hopes that John Oliver isn’t offended.
