Paul Henry, space cadet

It sometimes felt like Dr Mumbo was Paul Henry’s only fan during his shortlived spell as host of Ten’s Breakfast. So he’s glad to see the iconoclastic Kiwi get a joint TV and radio breakfast show on New Zealand’s TV3 and RadioLive.

However, the ad campaign to promote the show does scare Dr Mumbo a little.

The idea of waking up to find Paul Henry standing beside your bed, wearing a spacesuit, makes for a good scene in a low budget kiwi horror movie. Particularly in conjunction with Henry’s maniacal laugh.
