Lee Martin for Gag Reflex Management Presents 

Jan Maree

Hairy Today, Gone Tomorrow!

BackJan-Maree_470x270.jpg

To avoid re-living the embarrassment of the last Rugby World Cup, being ejected from the pub and doing the sinister with a handful of Beroccas, I had to leave the country. My underlying heritage issues gave me the perfect excuse to get the hell out of Kiwiland for a few weeks. This is the true-life story of what happened next.

Critics Review

TVNZ - Darren Bevan'Caustically funny, raucously rude and yet surprisingly touching at the end, this journey is one you really do want to take.'open/close
After winning last year's Fred Award, Jan Maree had the world as her oyster.

Which is probably a good thing given this half-caste Kiwi / Croatian lady had a sudden attack of the "Who am I?" and "Where am I from?" syndrome.

To be honest, a voyage of self-discovery is always a worry for a show - it's prone to self obsessed sentimentality rather than sharp insights; thankfully, Jan Maree is the complete opposite of what you'd expect from one of these trips in the vein of Who Do You Think You Are?

Caustically funny, raucously rude and yet surprisingly touching at the end, this journey is one you really do want to take.

From the quest to get a good waxing because of her hairy Croatian roots, to panic brought on by a teacher friend moving to Thailand, Jan gives this occasionally demented travelogue a freshness and live-wire feel that's eminently watchable.
