Adam Hills Vs Nui Te Koha

Nui Te Koha’s tour rumours are always good fun (Blink 182 and Limp Bizkit for BDO 2010 , Bruce Springsteen for this year’s AFL Grand Final ) but one of Nui’s reports in the weekend’s Herald Sun led to the usually mild mannered comedian Adam Hills launching into what he refers to as an ‘adamrant’ on Twitter. It’s sure to go down as one of the great Twitter war alongside other classics including Courtney Love Vs Billy Corgan ; Perry Farrell Vs the Lollapalooza leaker and Foals Vs LostProphets.

According to Hills’ the offending quote “was something like “Rihanna duetting with Chris Brown. Probably cos he’s good at making hits, er smashes, er…” provoking the former Spicks and Specks host to launch a series of tweets.

“Hey Nui Te Koha. A Herald Sun reference to Chris Brown/Rihanna duet leads to a joke about domestic violence. Classy, dipshit. Real classy. Meanwhile he bags someone else for being unfunny. For fucks sake, a domestic violence joke? Seriously, he calls himself a pop culture barometer. More like a pop culture catheter. Why? Cos he’s a massive pain in the dick.”

The Hearld Sun /Triple M rumour monger defended his attempt at humour by claiming that Rihanna “is trivializing what happened. She has cheapened the struggle” and that it is hard to “express [that] in a glib column. Rihanna should never work with Brown again. He hit and smashed her. That was my comment. Anti-Breezy. Always.”

With the feud now safely resolved Nui can get back to doing what he does best – we’ll be keeping an eye out for his Arcade Fire tour announcement.

i like adam hills, but i see nothing wrong with nui's joke, other than the fact he probably nicked it off my facebook, again :p

So Adam Hills is our new moral compass?

The "smash hits" style jokes have been running since the violence first came to light. Will Hills hunt down everyone who's made these poor taste jokes?

Will he take a high moral ground refuse to take the same stage as poor taste comedians at this year's Comedy Festival events?

Is just attention grabbing by Hills and NTK. Best to try and ignore 'em, IMO.

If he's anti-domestic violence jokes, then yes.



So he's not allowed to express an opinion unless he tracks down every single person who goes against that opinion and expresses it directly to them? He's saying a personal opinion in a personal social media account.



So far I haven't heard a single actual comedian make any domestic violence jokes, just unfunny people trying to be funny and edgy.

I'd prefer not to be aligned with Superman. I hate that guy. Maybe my bats? My greatest fear, turned into my greatest weapon?

I was halfway through Superman Returns when I realised what bugs me about Superman. I don't care in the slightest about the Superman/Lois Lane/Clark Kent thing. I think Superman AND Clark Kent are both boring as batshit, and I've never seen any rendition of Lane where she was the least bit interesting. Since the relationship between the three of them is pretty much the lynchpin of the Superman story, I just don't care about that either.

i've always liked Adam Hills, I dont think he's as funny as many people find him, but he's never offensively unfunny. He's like that guy in the group who tells all the easy jokes, but he's managed, through hard work and good timing, to turn that into a career.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 9th Mar, 2012

Adam Hills is a good TV host and seems like he would be a really nice guy. But he's just too nice to be funny for me.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 9th Mar, 2012

That's what makes him a good TV show host.

He's pretty much the straight guy with a good sense of humour.

I love horrible comedians, the ones who push the envelope.

jimmy carr, frankie boyle, and Gervais, particularly the latter, are all really big influences of mine. My cousin and me got stoned when i went back to England, I was like 16, and he put on Animals and Politics, changed my whole perspective on shit.

If only the cunt would tour.

Nui Te Koha has been named the 23rd most powerful person in Australian music by SPA and theMusic. he beat the likes of Ken West, Michael Coppel and Richard Kingsmill. Michael Guddinski was named the most powerful man in Australian music.

from the judges

Nui Te Koha – News Limited – Senior Writer
As a music reporter for Triple M and a Senior Writer for the Herald Sun, Nui Te Koha has become a reportable go-to-guy for information, news leaks and gossip in the industry. So sensational have been some of his claims that the industry – including other media – regularly take notice. During Prince’s recent tour, media outlets were monitoring his social media output for elusive updates on rumoured after parties. He seemed to have the direct line that no-one else could open.

So it appears obvious that the fact that he's always fucking wrong didn't play a part in their judgement of him...

Since i assume this list is compiled annually, it makes sense for Kingsmill to not be on it this year, seeing as he is away.
