A COMEDIAN AND AN OPERA SINGER'S WORLDS COLLIDE
David Hobson and Colin Lane have been friends for 25 years. From vastly different backgrounds, they have observed one another's worlds and always thought, "Gee, wouldn't it be nice to have a go at what that other guy does?" So here's their chance to see whether the grass is a little greener.
It's a unique and hilarious experiment that promises to enthral and entertain.
"In Tails" was first launched in 2016/17 with a selection of shows at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Festival of Voices - Theatre Royal Hobart, Albury Entertainment Centre, Spiegeltent Hobart and Capital Theatre Bendigo to a resounding applause.
Colin Lane, Comedian/Professional Show Off is best known as the Lano from Lano and Woodley, Australia's most beloved comedy duo. In almost 20 years together Lano & Woodley won the coveted Perrier Award for best show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, starred in their own television series and toured sold-out shows across the country. They said 'Goodbye' in 2006 with a national tour that took in 34 markets and sold more than 150,000 tickets. In 2018 the duo reprised their roles as Lano & Woodley for FLY, with a sold-out national tour of 85,000 ticket sales and winning the prestigious Melbourne Comedy Festival 'People's Choice Award'.
Colin has appeared in for the Melbourne Theatre Company and the Sydney Theatre Company, made many TV appearances including guest panellist on the UK favourite alongside Stephen Fry and Alan Davies - most recently on the new-look, Sandi Toksvig version of the hugely popular show. 2016 has seen Colin working with Red Stitch under director Nadia Tass in a new Hannie Rayson play , and the musical comedy whodunit, Curtains, under Roger Hodgman for The Production Company.
