The comedy of Col Elliot just goes on and on
FOR veteran comedian Col Elliott, comedy is a work in progress even after 38 years of performing.
Col will bring his hilarious comedy show to the Warwick RSL Memorial Club tomorrow night, with audiences warned nothing is sacred during his performance.
The long-time funnyman promised his show would be unique and admitted his shows changed nightly.
"If something's happening in town I'll jump on it," he said.
"I work conversational, gag, musical and character comedy into my show."
From Chooka to the over-the-top Slugger Mulligan, Col's show takes comedy to the edge.
"My style of comedy doesn't encompass one single genre," he said.
"Comedy to me is painting pictures - it's visual as well as spoken words.
"You can take it to any level you want."
Col was the first comedian in Australia to get a gold comedy album, an achievement he has repeated 13 times.
He also has a new album out titled Colfessions and a book called In Between the Laughter, with a big following of people ranging from ages 18 - 60.
"I've had such a good run - very, very fortunate," he said.
The night of comedy promises to take the edge off life, according to Col.
"Laughter is a great thing - it has the ability to take the edge off everything," he said.
"People relax for a minute, forget their problems and have a good laugh."
Col's show starts at 8pm, with tickets available for purchase at $39 each by phoning the RSL Memorial Club on 4661 1229.
