Back in the seventies, Australians got their laughs from mannered British comedies and saccharine sweet American sit coms. Then Paul Hogan burst onto our television screens. Suddenly, the jokes were about us. And we loved it… even if Hogan’s take on our national character was not always flattering. It was a new, truly Australian brand of humour. Then in 1983, Hoges invited the Poms to share the joke. At first, they didn’t quite know what to make of the laid back bloke with the quick wit and slow Aussie drawl. But once they got over the shock, they laughed as loud as we did. And with that, Paul Hogan became one of our most famous exports. So sit back and enjoy as Hoges turns his wit on the hapless English.
Stand Up Hoges:
You’ve seen him in the TV shows, you’ve seen him in the movies, but rarely have you seen Paul Hogan doing what he does best … standing in front of a live audience, telling stories. This collection of performances has been chosen by Paul as his favourites from his thirty year career. Hoges introduces each segment himself, throwing light on some of the backstage action and giving us “viewers” a peak inside his head. Most of these pieces have been aired only once, like the near legendary Command Performance for Prince Charles And Lady Di, that nearly brought the roof down at the Sydney Opera House, or the opening of the Sydney Entertainment Centre where, in front of ten thousand people, disaster was only averted by the timely arrival of Arthur Dunger. But that’s not all, included are several, NEVER SEEN BEFORE pieces, like “Hoges over America” at U.C.L.A. in front of a packed auditorium. You’ll also learn the real story behind ‘Waltzing Matilda’ from a relaxed Paul Hogan, drink in hand, at a private dinner. So check it out … Hoges in all his glory, bold as brass, sharp as a tack and bloody funny!
