After 30 years, three generations of fans, 13 gold and platinum albums, countless awards and the release of his new DVD Roadworks, Col Elliott is back in town!
With a cast of characters created over the last, incredibly successful 30 years, including Chooka the Roadie, Slugger and his latest creation Briden Backpack (a high-camp cowboy), Col has carved himself a niche in the Australian comedy market, achieving icon status around the country.
So what is the answer to Col's longevity and success? Ask Col and he'll simply say: "It's what I do and I love my work." In one breath he can be totally outrageous, in the next breath he can really make you think. Col Elliottt is a born story teller, a conversationalist who can paint pictures with words, expert at stand-up, political satire, conversational comedy and the creator of clever and outrageous ditties performed with his trusty guitar. His expressions, musical ability and acting talent guarantee his audiences, a diverse group from 18 to 60 year olds, an evening full of side-splitting laughs.
From the very beginning, Col was focusing on the ironies in life, having left the Navy in 1972 with: "... a basic knowledge of Bingo. I could ask for a beer in five different languages and track a submarine." Obviously, Col wasn't prepared for civlian life, and due to the immediate need for tyres on his clapped out old car, he fell back on his experience during his Navy days when he moonlighted in the bars of Singapore and Hong Kong for drinks and tips.
In 1973 he entered a Melbourne television talent show Kevin Dennis New Faces and won. He has never looked back.
Col now has numerous television shows, DVDs, CDs and videos to his credit and has toured with international stars including Tom Jones, Matt Munroe and the Little River Band.
