Pinky
Agnew

MC, comedian, radio columnist, actor and celebrant.

Profile


The key to Pinky Agnew's success is her versatility. Much of her work is done for corporate clients and large organisations, at conferences and seminars. She has also developed a programme called 'Work/Laugh Balance' which helps participants find good skills for surviving their unbalanced lives.

Media & communication
Pinky's public profile has come through writing and performing in her own shows ('Pinky Pops In', 'The Truth About Love'), radio (as a weekly columnist on Wellington's Newstalk ZB), and television (as Jenny Shipley on 'McPhail & Gadsby').

Along with Lorae Parry, Pinky Agnew wrote and appeared in the musical comedy, 'The Truth About Love', which had a sell-out season at Circa Studio in Wellington and has been the hit of arts festival around the country. Their latest play, a political satire called 'The Candidates', played to a sold-out season Circa theatre in July 2005, and was adapted for TV3’s election night coverage.

Marriage celebrancy is also part of Pinky’s ‘portfolio’, and she brings the same skills to this that she does to her performing work - warmth and humour, a well-written ceremony delivered with style and ease, and a day that runs smoothly, relaxing even the most nervous couples. Pinky is also a civil union celebrant, and conducts funerals and name giving ceremonies.

Current work
Pinky specialises in tailoring conference and seminar material for the client, spending time researching the organisation, industry and particular themes of the conference. Often retained to MC two and three day conferences, Pinky has a reputation for keeping people informed, enlivened and entertained throughout.
