Lano & Woodley : Fly

Friday -Saturday 9-10 March 2018
105 days from now

Presented by Token

After such a long wait, it’s with almost uncontainable excitement that Lano and Woodley present to Australian audiences FLY.

Lano & Woodley said goodbye in 2006, now a dozen years later they are storming their way back onto the stage with a brand new show, FLY!

Australia’s favourite double act came back together two years ago for the Melbourne Comedy Festival’s 30th Birthday Gala with a surprise performance at the Regent Theatre that brought the house down. It naturally led to a serious “Waddya reckon?” chat.
 
“Waddya reckon?” soon turned into “Yeah, why not? and now they're back on stage bringing Col's dream to life, an epic show, a tribute to the pioneers of flight, The Wright Brothers. No more mucking around, Colin and Frank have grown up and now it's time to make THEATRE. Although there is no reason whatsoever to think this will go as planned.
 
Lano (Colin Lane) and Woodley (Frank Woodley) came together in 1986 as two parts of a three hander called The Found Objects. When three became two in 1994, they became Lano and Woodley for a show at Melbourne’s tiny Carlton Courthouse.  That show went on to win the prestigious Perrier Award for best comedy in Edinburgh, making Lano and Woodley only the second Australian artists to take out the award. They returned home to full houses and a TV show co-produced with the ABC and BBC. Then in 2006, more than 150,000 people came to the Good Bye tour to say farewell.
 
Now, like a phoenix or a slo-mo Farnesy, they are back, with a brand spanking new show! (but much older muscles).

The childlike naivety of Colin and Frank’s on-stage personas gives Lano and Woodley a universal appeal, with people of all ages piling in to see their blockbuster shows.
 
Colin Lane: "Life's short - it was always such fun performing with each other - so we thought - why not have fun again?"
Frank Woodley: “I am really, really looking forward to being back on stage irritating Col.  Oprah Winfrey believes we’re all put on this earth for a special purpose, and if that’s true I’m convinced that mine is to shit Col.”
 

While the show appeals to virtually everyone with a pulse, a Lano and Woodley show is written with adults in mind. There is some coarse language in the show (including the f word) and broadly the show is most appropriate for those over 15 years of age, however if you don’t mind your child hearing swear words then younger children could come along although children under the age of 15 should be accompanied by an adult. There is some mild violence (comedic) and some tickling. There is plenty of visual material that will appeal to younger audience members.
