Brisbane Powerhouse presents
Bob Downe: 20 Golden Greats
Wed 12 - Sat 15 Dec 2012
Australia’s clown prince of polyester has been making the world laugh for more than 25 years… and he’s funnier than ever in his
brand new solo show!
Bob Downe is coming back to Brisbane to sing and swing his way through 20 Golden Greats.
Hot on the heels of hit seasons in Edinburgh, Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide, it’s the show where you’ll come in humming the classic pop, disco and rock hits.
“I give you my solemn promise,” says Bob, “There won’t be a single song you haven’t heard. And there’re prizes too!”
“Downe plays the audience like a much-loved violin.” - Adelaide Sunday Mail
“Mark Trevorrow has honed this character so that he truly is a beloved institution.” - Adelaide Advertiser

BOB DOWNE is the creation of journalist, comedian, actor and broadcaster MARK TREVORROW. Mark was born in Melbourne in 1959, trained as a journalist at the Herald Sun, and moved to Sydney in 1982 with the huge success of his cabaret group, THE GLOBOS. He created BOB DOWNE in 1984 and has toured the world as the Prince of Polyester ever since. Since 2002, Mark Trevorrow has established a parallel career singing, acting and broadcasting as himself. He is heard regularly on ABC Local Radio and his 2004 nostalgic talkumentary series The Way We Were was a ratings winner on the national broadcaster. He has also featured regularly on Kath & Kim, as 'Darryl' the menswear salesman, and will appear in the forthcoming Kath & Kim movie. Bob's last production stage show, WORLD WAR BOB, premiered to acclaim at the 2009 Adelaide Cabaret Festival, with a return season at Her Majesty's last April.
Bob's most recent TV appearances include The Project, The Circle, Melbourne Comedy Festival All-star Gala and hosting the 2012 SYDNEY GAY & LESBIAN MARDI GRAS PARADE broadcast.
