Jesse Mulligan became a household name thanks to his appearances on 7 Days, Seven Sharp and Best Bits. He grew up in Hamilton and trained as a lawyer, before a surprise win in a first-timers’ stand up comedy competition led his career in a different path. He spent several years working as a comedian and breakfast radio DJ in Wellington. Jesse is now the host of both Radio NZ National on weekdays and Thursday night comedy Best Bits. Off screen, he works as an event MC and as a writer.
