You can catch Hoges: One Night Only in Darwin on Friday, August 15 at the Darwin Entertainment Centre.
Following the huge success of last year’s Capital City tour of ‘An Evening with Hoges’, Paul Hogan has hit the highways for 25 Regional Performances with his even bigger one-man show - ‘HOGES; One Night Only! The hilarious truth and nothing but the truth…’
A dazzling combination of stand-up, stories and unseen clips, this is a two-hour show doing what Hoges does best – entertaining and making us laugh - and he has been doing that in spades getting standing ovations from sell-out crowds. Following the Cairns show he quipped that everyone came back after interval so he must be doing something right.
It is nice to see Australia’s favourite entertaining larrikin back in rural Australia. 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, flogging cigarettes and flogging Australia to Americans to Crocodile Dundee and Hollywood fame to his personal life and the much-publicised stoush with the Australian Tax Office. Nothing is out of bounds in this evening with Hoges – he’s pretty much an open book.
He’s arguably a little crustier and more cynical than in his early career days but the quick wit, timing and talent to communicate are still there. Expect a warm, very funny and interesting evening.
