Teschmaker Cup


Kevin O'Sullivan —


In classic Josh Thompson style he gracious acknowledged the Teschemaker Cup award for 2021.

In his acceptance message to the Rector he further said ‘ This is very humbling, Timaru Boys' High taught me respect, hard work and where to put an apostrophe after a plural noun so I'm very happy to receive this award.

Schedule permitting, it would be great to have a gander around the old grounds, I also lost a really good biro by the music room in 1996 so it would be worth me having another look.’

Josh has been a leading comedy actor in New Zealand for the past decade

He is best known for his work as a comedian on 7 Days, Have You Been Paying Attention, Patriot Brains and as a host on The Project

He had the lead role in the movie Gary of the Pacific and close to home directed his Dad in the award-winning web series Subject Dad

His acting roles have included playing Bob in Young Rock, Satan in Wellington Paranormal and Pigsy in the Netflix series The Legends of Monkey

Josh is a very funny, perceptive and caring theatrical talent.

A most worthy recipient for the THSOB premier award
