Larrikin Elliott's String Of Shows

Who: Col Elliot
Where: Singleton Bowling Club
When: Tuesday May 24, 2005

ONE of Australia's favourite larrikins, Col Elliott, has kept audiences rolling in the aisles for longer than he probably cares to remember.

In a career that has spanned around 30 years, Elliott has released 20 albums and a stack of successful videos.

Throughout his career Elliott has continued to return to the Hunter Region time and time again to share a laugh with his many fans.

A born story-teller, Elliott's jokes are renowned for leaving audiences in stitches but it is his colourful cast of characters that have remained the biggest hit with punters.

Over the years Elliott has created many memorable characters all of which are extremely popular.

From Chooka the Roadie to political satire to his new character Briden Backpack, a highly camp cowboy who is president of The Country and Precious Western Club, the characters clearly demonstrate Elliott's comedic ability.

Whether it is as one of his alter egos or just being himself doing stand-up comedy, Elliott has proved to be someone audiences can relate to.

There is no limit to his demographic either with his shows attracting everyone from 18 to 80 year olds.

Elliott will present a string of shows around the region this month, appearing at Singleton Bowling Club on Tuesday, May 24, Muswellbrook Workers Club on Wednesday, May 25, Maitland City Bowling Club on Friday, May 27, Doyalson Wyee RSL Club on Saturday, May 28 and Hexham Bowling Club on Sunday, May 29.
