Jono Pryor and Ben Boyce have announced on air their TV comedy series Jono & Ben won’t return next year.
The final series will mark the end of a seven year partnership.
Boyce said the show had been a huge part of their lives. “We’ve made over 200 episodes… we’ve put our pride, and at times our bodies, on the line all in the name of comedy – and we’ve loved every minute of making this show.”
MediaWorks chief content officer Andrew Szusterman said the years the show has been running is almost unprecedented for an entertainment show in New Zealand.
“Jono and Ben will remain very much a part of the MediaWorks family and I am really excited about what we can do in the future – we’ve already started discussing some ideas,” he said.
