After sell out shows in 2013 and a 25 city regional tour of the nation HOGES returns with a dazzling combination of stand-up, stories and unseen clips. PAUL HOGAN is live on stage for 2 hours doing what Hoges does best – Entertain!
Paul said: ‘About 30 years ago I toured the country performing with Normie Rowe and others and we had a blast! – Then, when I did the movie Charlie & Boots, only a few years back, I had the time of my life travelling throughout Australia and immediately started looking for an excuse to do it again. This is that excuse!"
Hoges first appeared on our screens over 40 years ago, and since has had a top rating TV show, won Logies, Golden Globes, hosted the Oscars and sold Australia to the world.
What Australian’s audiences said about his recent tour of ‘An Evening with Hoges’:
“Just sensational! A once in a lifetime opportunity and I wasn’t disappointed!’
“What a fantastic show, brought back so many funny memories!”
“Paul Hogan was so funny! Haven’t laughed so much in years, highly recommend seeing his show. Great night!”
“Such a great experience to be in a room with a man with such great history in this country. We hung on every word and a ball was had by all”
“What a blast from the past! A truly memorable occasion"
Paul Hogan was working on the Sydney Harbour Bridge before rising to fame in the early 1970s with his own comedy sketch programme, The Paul Hogan Show, which he produced, co-wrote, and in which he played a panoply of characters. The series, which ran for 60 episodes between 1973 and 1984, was popular both in his native country and around the world. In 1985, Hogan was awarded Australian of the Year and was also inducted into the Order of Australia.
During the early 1980s, Hogan filmed a series of television ads promoting the Australian tourism industry, which aired in the United States. In particular the advertisement featuring the phrase "Shrimp on the Barbie" which aired from 1984, was particularly successful. Later in the decade, he appeared on British television in a long-running series of advertisements for Fosters' Lager, in which he played an earthy Australian abroad in London. The character's most notable line (spoken incredulously at a ballet performance) "Strewth, mate, there's a bloke down there with no strides on!" followed Hogan for years, and the popularity of its "fish out of water" humour was repeated with his next endeavour.
Hogan's first film, Crocodile Dundee (1986), featured a similarly down-to-earth hunter travelling from the Australian Outback to New York City. The film became the most successful Australian film ever and launched Hogan's international film career. It won him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy, as well as an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay, and a BAFTA Award nomination.
Following the success of Crocodile Dundee Hogan starred in the sequel in 1988 and these two films have taken over half a billion dollars at the worldwide Box Office. Most recently Hogan starred in the highest grossing Australian film of 2004, Strange Bedfellows and the 2009 Australian film with Shane Jacobson Charlie & Boots directed by Dean Murphy.
