Frank Woodley


After 20 years as one half of the much loved, Perrier Award-winning Lano and Woodley, Frank said Good Bye to their twenty years on stage in 2006 with a national tour that took in 34 markets and sold more than 125,000 tickets.

Since hanging up his hat, Frank has been busier than a bee (bees are allegedly flat out).  His smash hit solo show Possessed played across Australia and the Edinburgh Festival with packed houses and rave reviews for his virtuoso physical comedy piece. In addition, his animated short, Chicken of God, received an AFI nomination and he won the coveted Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh Fringe for his role of Candide in the Malthouse Theatre production of Optimism.

Frank's also a regular guest on ABC TV’s music quiz show Spicks and Specks and Network TEN’s Good News Week and an audience favourite on Thank God You're Here. 

In 2010, Australia’s most visually compelling comedian returned to where fans love to see him the most – on stage doing live stand up in the unique song singing, limb flinging Woodley way. It was no surprise that Frank’s new solo show, Bewilderbeest, quickly sold out around the country, firmly cementing him as once of one of Australia’s most-loved comedians.

Now his focus is back on the small screen, developing a new TV project that will be unveiled in 2011.
