Lano & Woodley – Moby Dick

We only link to official ticket sellers for Lano & Woodley

Lano & Woodley are back with a whale of a show.

Moby Dick is one of the greatest stories ever told, with adventure, revenge, madness, religion and the fury and majesty of nature, all served with a side of whaling.

Frank and Colin have once again bitten off more than they can chew, as they pull up anchor on their most ambitious show yet.

Will Captain Ahab’s hatred of his nemesis Moby Dick send them headlong into total destruction? Will Colin’s long held hatred of Frank, end in the destruction of his dickhead nemesis?

Together Lano & Woodley have made some of Australia’s most loved comedy shows. Their love/hate relationship has fuelled countless ovations and slews of awards, finding new fans and devoted followers everywhere they go.

One thing is for sure, as Frank and Colin set sail with their new show, they will fill the stage with an hour of sublime, inventive and ridiculous comedy.

If there ever was a year to escape into the innocent imaginations of Lano & Woodley, it’s this one.

“There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair when a man takes this universe for a vast practical joke.” Herman Melville, Moby Dick

“Col and I love creating theatrically ambitious Lano & Woodley shows. For the last eighteen months or so we’ve been working on our newest effort – Moby Dick. We’re using the classic tale of the demented Captain Ahab and his obsession with taking revenge on the whale that bit off his leg, as a springboard for Lano & Woodley to become entangled in their own crazy and hilarious conflict with each other. We can’t wait to smash a champagne bottle across its bow and launch the new show!” Frank Woodley

We are going try and convince you the show should be called Moby dick – by the end, you may think it’s more like Moby dickheads. In the new show, an obsessed and maniacal captain tries desperately to maintain his dignity and achieve the ultimate revenge. It’s also a story about Moby Dick.” Colin Lane

“Mayhem, absurdity and merriment” ★★★★ The Age, 2022

“Lano & Woodley really do guarantee a whale of a time.” ★★★★ Chortle, 2022

“Two of our greatest virtuosos of comedy.” Herald Sun

“No Australian double act flirts in such a doggedly brilliant way with comedic failure.” The Age

“The stranger next to me was constantly wiping away tears of laughter, and most of us weren’t far behind.” The Advertiser

Recommended for ages 15+:

While the show appeals to virtually everyone with a pulse, a Lano and Woodley show is written with adults in mind. There is some course language in the show (including the f word) and broadly the show is most appropriate for those over 15 years of age, however if you don’t mind your child hearing swear words then younger children could come along although children under the age of 15 should be accompanied by an adult. There is some mild violence (comedic) and some tickling. There is plenty of visual material that will appeal to younger audience members.
