David Hobson & Colin Lane in Tails

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 enthrall 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’. David Hobson, tenor and composer, is one of Australia’s best-known operatic, concert and stage performers, with a repertoire that spans the gamut of musical styles from Baroque through to Pop. From 2017 to 2019, David has been touring the hugely successful production ’The 2 Of Us’ alongside compatriot and friend Marina Prior.
