The 24-year-old Wainuiomata resident only took comedy up three years ago and is now touring the country, with many of his shows selling out quickly.

"It is crazy. I think the biggest thing that I definitely get emotional over is it's a massive as feat for me," he told 1 NEWS. "It's something that I'm genuinely passionate about."

He is certainly trending online, with over 40,000 followers.

He describes his humour as raw in an effort to show it's not awkward to speak up.

"I think from day one I just want to push the envelope on what was appropriate and try to start conversations that people don't want to start."
