He wasn't protecting his daughter. He was abusing her..

He's hiding behind not being named, to protect his daughter..

Unfortunatly, sad, that it is. The young girl would be the one to suffer..While, he just carries on. And still wants people to hire him.. Yeah - right..

He should be named..

Hi silva wolf i know this is a big accusation on my behalf and i may not know that to be true. I heard this to be true a while back, one it was buzzing around AUT when i was there.. and it was found inside a mock molotov cocktail thingy inside all of the toilets and then, i was talking to security and it was the same message in the bottle they had to analuze it as it posed a risk.

It was about bill/ben comedy guys, and saying the story, the person was pretty much campaigning f%^&K name supression and it said the gorey story that happened.. so yeah i am unceratin but it was quite a buzz in AUT. It just sounds so familiar..

Hi Erana Monika.. Wasn't Bill, the idiot, who got caught and charged with pretending to b a plane pilot..

In the story in the paper late yesterday avo. One excuse he ( whoever ) said about what he got caught at by his wife was. " I thought she was you "

Yeah right. Even being drunk, as he claims. He couldn't tell the difference, between his very young daughter, and his wife...
I don't believe that excuse....

yes it is quite distasteful comedy and i do not know how they end up on TV. they were outside a self confidence clinic or something and whenever someone came out they'd cheer in their "tutu" i might add U G L Y you aint got no alibi you ugly to women young teens etc..

Yes one of them dressed up pretending to be a pilot.

he must have been right off his face to not be able to tell his daughter from his wife. Just how many times has that been a valid excuse?

if he was just drunk, there may have been the possibility of drugs being involved too

I agree with what has been said in these posts but am appalled you would further traumatise the child (and ex-partner) who are currently in therapy trying to put this behind them. The judicial system puts name suppression in place for a reason, and it is to protect the child. Posts naming the perpetrator need to be deleted. In addition you are also tarring his ex work partner with the same brush since you can't seem to remember who is who, and that isn't fair to him (regardless of you view on his work).

Hi there i understand that the position you are taking is in concern for the child and yes if the man is seen as a sexual offender this would cause trauma and mayhem for the child at school or basically in the public eye. reputation is particularly important for someone whose career involves exposure to many NZ homes.

On the subject of name suppression, I want to ask you this, if there was a sex offender a rapist pedophile etc who happened to have children of his own that lived in your neighbourhood and was committing indecent acts on local neigbourhood women and children, name suppression is good? you will protect his children and other children. There may be a lack of discretion on my behalf but to know/ or narrow down a sex offender and not name him would be treason? name suppression is appropriate for alleged until proven guilty or until there is supporting evidence of them being guilty of the crime. name suppression has a public figure in palmerston north on home detention still, with name suppression while being caught having indecent footage and photos of children, do we keep our mouths shut about that too regardless of what this person does?

it is good that they are trying to help the family recover, this would show that the act was not psychologically out of his control and there may not be a chance of reoffending he is trying to find a solution to his problem and this would have caused a major upset in his home and work life.

i do apologize for not getting the name correct my intention was to narrow it down more because in my view NZ comedian that could be dai henwood, mike king so all new zealand comedians have been tarred with the "nz comedian brush" which in turn does not justify my previous comments. I simply had been given this information a long time ago and hopefully what i had recalled would spark a memory in someone else that may have heard a similar allegation. for example if it was jeremy corbett i would have been way off in my allegations and someone would have enjoyed correcting me. so yes overall i do apologize for not being able to distinguish one from the other.

it may seem as well there is a subjective bias coming from my behalf to have a certain attitude toward these particular comedians. while this may be true these are not the only comedians i have this view towards. to me the job description does not matter its the crime! if he was bob from space shuttle cleaning i would and will not have cared. his job description is just formulating a familiar context for those who may know this person or is familiar with this person

I don't condone abuse of children sexual or otherwise. But I tend to believe the comedian when he stated he "thought" it was his wife he was kissing, fondling whatever! Personally I have on ocassions in a drunken state woken up semi concious and had sex with my partner but dreaming of another woman. Of course sometimes it can take a few minutes before realising (disappointedly) the woman in bed next to me is actually my partner. Although a horrible case, I disagree this is sexual abuse, but rather a case of mistaken identity on a sub concious level!

Do you really think that his ex wife weighs approximately 18kg? Whilst lying next to him, is only half his height (well sorry dai, that doesn't count for you) you disgust me for trying to make such an act seem innocent!
