The self-described “star” of TV3's ‘ The Jono Project' is nominated for the prestigious Billy T Award.
Since leaving high school at the end of 2005 Guy Williams has been mildly successful as a BA student, ‘amateur professional' basketball player, student union leader, unlicensed liquidator, unqualified legal advisor, failed pub quiz host and faux television journalist; constantly on the brink of achieving greatness without ever actually getting there.
In late 2011 Guy Was asked to speak at his old high school as someone who was quote “successful or on the verge of success”. Guy agreed to give the speech mainly in an effort to stop local multi sport champion Nathan Fa'avae from getting to do it for doing it for the 5th year in a row. “On the verge of nothing” is Guy's attempt to ‘educate' the students of Nelson College using his own experiences to impart the wealth of wisdom and knowledge he has acquired in his time spent ‘almost making it'.
Guy Williams has been stalking the boards of the New Zealand Comedy scene for over four years. Guy claims he “captured the hearts of the nation” in 2010 when he appeared on Paul Henry's reakfast program as a representative for “Commercial Whaling New Zealand”.
In 2011 Guy ‘starred' in TV3's “The Jono Project” where he has been described as “easily the worst part of the show” (Jack Finnen, user comment: stuff.co.nz). 2012 will see Guy's return to Paul Henry's show as a guest on “Would I lie to you”. He will also appear on TV3's new sitcom ‘Hounds'.
