Video: Comedian Nish Kumar gives Metro a tour of MOTAT

Apr 29, 2016 Theatre

New Zealand comedian Nic Sampson has lived in Auckland for 10 years, and in that time learned almost nothing about it. Thankfully, the NZ International Comedy Festival is upon us and some kindly visiting comedians have offered to help Nic out by giving him a tour of some of its most iconic places. It turns out Auckland’s transport has a very dark history, if British comedian Nish Kumar’s tour of MOTAT (Museum of Transport and Technology) is anything to go by…
