James Nokise is a Stand-up Comedian by trade. He won Best Male Comedian in 2013. He pops up on TV and Radio every now and then.
Nokise is also an award winning theatre-maker, a guest Columinist for several publications, a Social Commentator on Radio and TV, a marionette Puppeterr, a political Playwright, occasional theatre Performer, and even less occasional Performance Poet. Diversifying has led to a lot of strange gigs in strange places (Guam, New York, Owaka).
Based out of Wellington, but spending most of his time either working out of Auckland, or at an International Festival somewhere, Nokise is a full-time artist constantly working to travel and travelling to work.
