It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years since the release of the Prince of Polyester’s ARIA-nominated live comedy jazz album, JAZZY! But let’s face it - Bob Downe isn’t getting any older!
To celebrate, he’s recreating the entire album, live on stage with a hot jazz band and original guest Pastel Vespa - complete with fan fave songs including ‘YEH YEH’, ‘MACK THE KNIFE’,’ THAT’S LIFE’ and ‘FLY ME TO THE MOON.’
Bob’s stage shows have played to acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Cabaret Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and decades of touring across Australia and the UK including P&O Comedy Cruises and performing for the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance. Bob’s TV appearances range from Countdown to The Project, from the Mike Walsh Show to Studio 10, and hosting multiple Sydney Mardi Gras broadcasts. As Mark he has been heard regularly on ABC local radio and presented The Way We Were, a ratings winner on ABCTV in 2004. He is also featured regularly on Kath & Kim as ‘Darryl’ the menswear salesman.
