There's no disputing that Nick Giannopoulos,Vince Colosimo and Alex Dimitriades are pretty good mates. They work well together both on stage and film, and each one has carved out a successful career. Playing out what life is like as 'wog boys' gives them an opportunity to reunite, work and hang together.
These three exceptionally talented actors are touring with their new stage show The WOGBOYS Live touring Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. It's set in the mid 90's and follows the life of everyday situations in the lives of a group of Wogboys. They will be joined by talented actors Frank Lotito and Hollie Andrew.
The show will be looking back at the 90's from now. "Being a wog boy in the 90's is so different to now, as now it's kinda cool to be a wog. That is what the show is all about - a time when it wasn't cool to be a wog" says Nick Giannopoulos.
He's won numerous awards including 2 Mo Awards for Best Comedy Performer of the year in 1998 and 1999, the Comedy Star of The Year award at the Australian Movie Exhibitors Convention in 2001, and an IF Award for Most Successful Box Office Australian film of the year for 2000.

Included in the mix is film producer Frank Lotito who's been acting, writing and producing in Australia and the US for over 15 years. He won praise from critics in 2011 for his movie Big Mamma's Boy, a comedy he wrote, produced and starred in. It follows the life of Rocco Pilegi struggling to choose between love, independence, and his doting over protective Italian mother. More recently he produced the film The Lookalike starring John Corbett (aka Aiden Shaw, Carrie's boyfriend in Sex and the City), Justin Long and Jerry O'Connell. He will start production on Good Ol Boy in Los Angeles later in the year.
