Hayley has been a writer on many of TV3’s series including Jono and Ben, Seven Days and Funny Girls, with a weekly segment Hayley Bailey featuring on the Jono and Ben show. She regularly makes comedy content for TVNZ and is co-host in both seasons of The Great Kiwi Bake Off for TVNZ 2 and now the host of comedic current affairs show Have You Been Paying Attention?

Testimonials

Thanks so much for the AMAZING job you did as MC for us, you really nailed it! We’ve had wonderful feedback on the event overall, with particular mention of the great life, fun and positivity you injected. Your self-deprecating approach really appealed to our audience and your wit, professionalism and skill really shone through. Thanks for powering through the programme at a great pace, without making it feel rushed – I’m glad you didn’t have to whip out the bell on our speakers in the end, but appreciate that you were willing to.
