Come laugh with Col

COL Elliott promises plenty of new material and surprises for his show at the Wonthaggi Workmen’s Club on Friday, July 4.
But the Australian comedy icon will not promise to be politically correct.
“It’s all true blue Aussies humour at its best,” he said.
Promoting both the recent re-release of the double CD set COL-FESSIONS, and the new release of his book In Between The Laughter, Col is doing what he does best: telling his side of the story.
He has been a household name on the comedy circuit for almost four decades.
“People can come and hear a lot of new material. Comedy is like any work; it must progress. You just have to keep it evolving and keep it changing,” Elliott said.
“That is what I have been doing over the years and that has given me the longevity.”
He’s been to Wonthaggi before and has always enjoyed a receptive audience.
For Col, everything he does, hears and sees in everyday life provides fodder for his humorous stories.
For the first time ever, he recently sat down to etch these stories into the history books, and the result is his memoir In Between the Laughter which is due for release in the next couple of weeks.
Col admitted it was actually his wife who made him put pen to paper.
“She constantly listened to the stories and told me to get them down before I was too old to remember,” he said.
From joining the navy at 16, sent to Vietnam at 17, Col’s life has been a varied and interesting one. There are highs and lows, however, all told with this entertainer’s down-to-earth style.
He says the experiences throughout his life have helped shape who he has become and how his meagre beginnings led to a life in showbiz.
Don’t miss Col Elliott as he brings his show to Wonthaggi. Tickets are on sale now. Col’s memoir In Between the Laughter is out now. To book, phone the club on 5672 1082.
The show will run from 8-11pm, with a break in the middle.

Funny man: comedian Col Elliott will bring his entertaining stories to the Wonthaggi Workmen’s Club.
