THE RYDGES POST
Call that an evening? This is an evening! It’s been a while since Hoges has been out and about doing what he does best… making us laugh.
It is nice to see Australia’s favourite entertaining larrikin lining up a few nights for reminiscing with his fans. His life has been an extraordinary ride – from a rigger on the Sydney Harbour Bridge to guest spots on A Current Affair to being a household name with his own TV comedy show to flogging cigarettes and flogging Australia to Crocodile Dundee and Hollywood fame to his much-publicised stoush with the Australian Tax Office.
He’s arguably a little crustier and more cynical than in his early career days but the 73-year-old’s quick wit, timing and talent to communicate are still there. Expect a warm, very funny and interesting evening.
