On this episode of Between Two Beers we talk to Madeline Sami. 

Madeleine is one of New Zealand’s funniest, and most prolific, comedic talents. 

She’s an actor, musician, comedian, writer and director, who you might have seen as the star of Box-office success the Breaker-Upperers, or her new show Deadloch, or as the host of the Great Kiwi Bake Off, or Shortland Street, or Super City or Sione’s Wedding....she’s done a lot – her IMDB page is ridiculous.. 

In this episode we talk about her weirdest jobs, best accents, relationship with Lucy Lawless, Onehunga up-bringing and the loss of her father, Taika Waititi and the highs and lows of fame, Super City, Tom Sainsbury and so much more. 

Madeline is one of the most entertaining – and coolest - guests we’ve had. Funny, thoughtful and a wicked storyteller this was one of our favs – and we can’t wait for you to hear it.
