Best known as one half of Australia’s favourite comedy double act, Lano and Woodley, Colin Lane has earned the adulation of critics and audiences alike.
In almost twenty years together Lano and 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. Their hilarious act made them a household name of Australian comedy. Sadly they are no more, after saying ‘Goodbye’ in 2006 with a national tour that took in 34 markets and sold more than 125,000 tickets.
Since the farewell tour, Colin has appeared in “Don’s Party” for the Melbourne Theatre Company, followed by a season with the Sydney Theatre Company. He presented “Wine Me, Dine Me” and “Kings of Comedy” for the Nine Network and has made numerous appearances on ABC TV’s “Spicks and Specks” and Network TEN’s “Good News Week”. Most recently he appeared at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in “Two For The Road: The Music of Movie Maestro Henri Mancini”. Currently, he is performing in Essgee Productions “The Mikado” as Pooh Bar at QPAC.
Colin has also entertained, amused and enlightened various corporate clients such as Time Magazine and the St. Kilda Film Festival.
Colin’s comedic celebrity is well deserved, and has yet to meet and audience that can resist his wiles.

"It is wonderful that even today, with all the competition of radio, television, films, and records, the book has kept its precious character. A book is somehow sacred. A dictator can kill and maim people, can sink to any kind of tyranny and only be hated. But when books are burnt the ultimate in tyranny has happened. This we cannot forgive."
