Dean Watson has been a comedy writer for the past 8 years, full time for the last 3. This usually sees him writing topical one-liners for New Zealand’s highest rating TV comedy show “7 Days”.
Up until he was 20, Dean wanted to be a professional golfer. But there comes a point in every aspiring comedy writer golfer’s life where they need to trade the fades for the fade ins.
After a wild and crazy youth spent trying to become a professional golfer, at age 20 he started his TV career. His first gig was as a camera operator on the 2010 Channel 31 program “With Tim Ferguson”, before landing writing gigs on the comedy game show 31 Questions and then on the live late night talk show “Live On Bowen.”
