Radio host, TV presenter and accomplished MC.

A true professional, by the end of the night you’ll want to take him home to meet your Mum.

Host of The Project and the Afternoons programme on RNZ National, weekdays. Jesse Mulligan was also a regular panellist on 7 Days.

Originally from Hamilton, Jesse has ‘done it all’ in the media, and it’s his diverse CV which enables him to perform professionally and entertainingly at any live event. He’s been a stand up comic, TV producer, writer, PR man, food reviewer, radio announcer and, of course, a sought after MC. He’s even a trained lawyer.

Current work
But there’s a lot more to Jesse than what you see on TV. He works as a writer for television, radio and magazines, and he’s the restaurant critic for NZ Herald’s Viva magazine.

Jesse attributes his writing ability to the success of many of his MC roles. He spends time before the event preparing his presentation and humour to be specific to your industry or audience.

With hundreds of awards nights, conferences and gala dinners under his belt, family man Jesse knows what your event needs and delivers beyond expectations every time. His unique background in stand up comedy and corporate communications allow him to inject humour and warmth to the evening, without ever losing sight of the overall objectives of the event.

Jesse is the consummate professional and perfect for your next event!

Jesse, you were without a doubt the right choice for the event. Feedback from both members and clients about you has been particularly outstanding. From my perspective, your proactive and creative suggestions leading up to and during the event were received gratefully. Please be assured that I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you for any jobs in the future and will most certainly keep you top of mind for any of my own events should you be willing to take on another one.
