Paul Hogan

Paul Hogan is an Australian comedian, actor and television presenter born on 8 October 1939. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his performance as outback adventurer Michael “Crocodile” Dundee in Crocodile Dundee, the first in the Dundee series film franchise.

An expanded version entitled The Paul Hogan Show premiered on Australia’s Nine Network and quickly propelled him to the top of the ratings chart. His dramatic role on the critically acclaimed television series Anzacs and his work in promoting Australia worldwide invested him into the Order of Australia and led to his appointment as “Australian of the Year”.

Hogan was the executive producer/writer/star of the feature films Almost an Angel, Lightning Jack, starred in Flipper and Floating Away . American audiences also remember Hogan from his now legendary commercials for the Australian Tourist Commission in which he invited us to say “g’day” and come “down under” so he could “slip another shrimp on the barbie”. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, he appeared in commercials for Subaru Outback automobiles. He reprised his famous role as the outback adventurer in the long awaited sequel Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles.

Paul Hogan First marriage

The pair wed in 1990 and they also share five children. Kozlowski filed for divorce from Hogan in 2013, although they remain amicable.

Paul Hogan Show

The Paul Hogan Show is a popular Australian comedy show which aired on Australian television from 1973 until 1984. It made a star of Paul Hogan, who later appeared in “Crocodile” Dundee. The show then presented a series of comedy sketches, usually with Hogan in the lead role and playing various recurring characters, these include:

Leo Wanker: an inept daredevil stuntman.
George Fungus: a take-off of real-life television journalist George Negus of the Australian 60 Minutes.
Super Dag: an ocker superhero complete with terry-towelling hat and zinc-creamed nose. His powers include his ability to use his esky in innovative ways.
Perce the Wino: an old drunken derro who starred in a series of silent, Benny Hill-style, sketches.
Donger: variants of this beer-gutted character include Sgt Donger, the tough cop with a bionic beer-gut, and Arthur Dunger, a caricature of the suburban tinny-chugging Australian male.
Nigel Lovelace: a skateboarding eleven-year-old (“almost twelve” as they say in the show).
The Phantom: a parody of the famous comic book hero The Phantom.
