Tom Sainsbury: Comedian & Snapchat Dude

Talkback Weeknights

·      Tom Sainsbury - Comedian, Actor & Writer: CreativeProcess & Career·      Benny Mack – Host·      Selenya – Producer·      Special Thanks – Auckland ActorsTom Sainsbury came into prominence in 2017 by using Snapchat and short video content to satirise New Zealand politicians. He has since expanded to parodying New Zealanders of all walks of life on his Facebook page.  In 2020 he was named 'Herald Entertainer of the year'. This came from years of creating his social media content, starring in Wellington Paranormal, The Educators and being a regular on Have You Been Paying Attention, acting in feature film Dead and writing the comedy book New Zealanders: A Field Guide. The latter is a hilarious catalogue of all the New Zealand character types he's come across over the years. Since then, he has become a regular on New Zealand television with Snackmasters and Give Us A Clue and he is about to tour New Zealand with his show Tom Sainsbury: Snapchat Live.Show LinksTom Sainsbury - Snapchat Dude Live NZ Tour 2022 - EventfindaTom Sainsbury - Comedian and Snapchat Dude | FacebookTalkback PagesFacebook:  https://www.facebook.com/talkbacknzYouTube: https://youtube.com/channel/UCwW5neVbnR4mqQp-V3ln0SgD-Live: https://dlive.tv/TalkbackTwitter: https://twitter.com/ThaneKirbyhttps://twitter.com/SelinaSpainWant to catch up with the show in the car?Subscribe to the audio in the app of your choice:https://talkback.nz/listenSupport this Show: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/talkbacknzhttps://talkback.nzTalkback Weeknights: Thane & the Team is Talkback chat with business-minded folks,commentators, innovators, creators & more.

Tom Sainsbury policing holiday snaps with Tourism New Zealand for new campaign

The Sunday Session with Francesca Rudkin

There are over 2101 trees lining the shores of Lake Wanaka. Tom Sainsbury wants to know why you'd take another picture of "that Wanaka Tree."The Kiwi comedian is concerned that many New Zealanders are being led astray "under the social influence" of much-repeated photos online. The Wanaka willow has appeared in over 63,000 Instagram photos and counting, the nearby Roy's Peak has been tagged 70,000 times, and frankly many of these photos look a little similar.As the face of Tourism New Zealand's latest campaign Sainsbury has been policing the social-media trends of Kiwis for a promotional video. Patrolling lavender fields and the scenes of New Zealand's most heinous travel photo clichés, he has been encouraging New Zealanders to see more of their backyard."What you need to do is think outside the square," he says.Sainsbury wants you to get off the beaten track and "share something new". He's not above a bit of bribery to achieve this.As part of the campaign Tourism New Zealand is selecting the top 10 photos tagged with #DoSomethingNewNZ on social media through February, rewarding them with $500 each to put towards a New Zealand holiday."'New' is different to everyone," says Bjoern Spreitzer, GM of domestic at TNZ."What we are asking Kiwis to do is find a tourism experience or destination that is new to them, then post that to social media in a new way."To do this Spreitzer suggests consulting friends and family rather than the photos of travel bloggers.The tourism body wants to see fewer "hot tub back shots" and more unusual activities in lesser-visited places."There are so many incredible things to do in New Zealand, beyond the social trends," says Spreitzer.To be in with a chance of winning one of 10 domestic travel vouchers worth $500, share your most original New Zealand travel photos via the hashtag #DoSomethingNewNZ on TNZ's social media before 1 March.text by Thomas Bywater, NZ HeraldSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
