Opeti Vaka

Winner - Wellington Raw Comedy Quest 2019

If you ask him how long he's been performing comedy, he'll tell you "Well I’ve actually been funny all my life." His Aunty said to him "You're funny alright boy. Just try not to be funny at a tangi. People are trying to grieve".

With a dollop of born and bred South Auckland styles, add in a sprinkle of life in the fast lane with his very large whanau and their antics, take a pinch of "what the f**k?", and wrap it all up in a person of colour (that colour being Maori), well you get a very comedic perspective of his world.
