Lano and Woodley
Your's truly was one of the assembled throng who gathered at the Regent Theatre on Saturday night for the final show of Lano and Woodley's Goodbye tour. For those of you who didn't see this show in its travels around Australia, make sure you see the DVD. Excluding the coarse language, it was hilarious. I haven't laughed so much in ages, at least not since I watched Benny Hill on Channel 7 last Saturday night. The show featured their usual mixture of skits, slapstick, songs, interpretative dance, and so on. Another attraction was the chance to play spot the entertainer. Wayne Hope, Adam Richard and Jo Stanley from Fox FM, Age columnist Danny Katz, Shaun Micallef, and Brian Nankervis were among those in the audience. During the interval Glenn Robbins politely held open the door of the men's room for me, believe it or not. To Lano and Woodley, thanks for many years of laughs, and I wish you well in your future careers. So long, and thanks for all the fish.
