As the ‘Lano’ from Lano & Woodley, Colin Lane was one half of Australia’s favourite comedy duo. They won comedy’s Oscar, the Perrier Award, and their series, The Adventures of Lano & Woodley played in more than 30 countries. In 2006 they said Goodbye with a tour that played to 125,000 people in 34 towns.
Since the farewell tour, Colin has toured to cabaret and comedy festivals around Australia, and has become a regular on a wide variety of Aussie TV shows, including Spicks and Specks, Ready Steady Cook and The Circle.
In 2016, Colin reunited with Frank Woodley as part of the 30th Birthday Bash for the MICF. He has worked with both Red Stitch under director Nadia Tass, and The Production Company, in “Curtains”. He’s also teamed up with his friend of 25 years, opera singer David Hobson, for “In Tails”. They sing, dance and even tell some jokes in a unique and hilarious experiment that entertains and beguiles in a whole new way.
This year, Colin has headed to Queensland to star as Joh Bjelke-Petersen in a brand new musical Joh for PM which centres around the life and politics of the divisive state Premier.
