Comedian Proud to Be a Yobbo

Comedian Proud to Be a Yobbo

Who: Chris Franklin
Where: The Valley Brewery
When: Thursday November 30, 2000

IT would be fair to say Australia has its fair share of yobbos.

But rarely does one come along, dressed to the nines in flanno, double-plugger thongs and mullet hairdo, and steal the show from the glitz and glamour of our music industry.

Comedian CHRIS FRANKLIN became an exception to the norm with the release earlier this year of his first single, BLOKE, which reached number one on the charts.

His comedic talents were discovered back in 1997, and the self-confessed 'bogan' has since raked in a stack of awards, including the accolade for Triple J's Raw Comedy's best new comedian.

Franklin will play at The Valley Brewery on November 30, the Cessnock Supporters Club on December 1, and SJ's Hotel on December 3. TE
