Billy Black

Billy Black is a fantastic entertainer and NZ character - the closest thing NZ has to Fred Dagg.

Billy travelled the world for many years as a professional shearer and was involved in a World Record 20 years ago which still stands today, (shearing 675 sheep in one day).

Billy has now designed and built one of the most unique tourism complexes at in the country as featured on Country Calendar and the Great Outdoors programmes and is voted in the Top Ten of the most unusual places to stay in the world by Lonely Planet.

With years experience of entertaining many different groups from schools, through to corporate functions as well as nightly entertainment at his complex, Bo;;u Black has designed a show especially for the corporate market.

Billy offers two different options. Firstly, he is a humorous, motivational after dinner speaker, telling his story of reaching his dreams - becoming a world record sheep shearer and building the world's most unusual motel.

He also does an after dinner entertainment option where he brings sheep on stage, hynotises them, does a bit of shearing with lots of audience participation and rollicking good humour!!
