From Crime to Comedy
In a celebration of twenty years of operation the Winston Hills – Northmead
Combined Probus Club is following up their previous guest speaker (Professor
Nicholas Cowderay) who gave a very interesting and thought provoking talk on Crime and Criminal maters at their May General Meeting with a renowned comedian at their June General Meeting which coincides with their 20th anniversary.
As Johnny Pace says “When the mouth is open for laughter - it is possible to shovel in a little food for thought”.
Many of you will remember Johnny from his award winning cabaret appearances or his many TV shows in the 70’s and 80’s. Shows such as “The Celebrity Game,” “BlanketyBlanks,” “Celebrity Squares,” “Good Morning, Sydney” etc as well as his drivetime shows on 2GB, movie performances such as “All at Sea” etc. But he says what he has done is unimportant - it’s what he’s about to inflict on us that counts!
His subject is “Putting Humour to Work” in which he shows how our attitudes and perspectives can create unnecessary stress, making us old – or should that be older? – before our time and what we can do to reduce our stress levels. This talk is half serious and half humorous because Johnny believes that when the mouth is open for laughter, it is possible to shovel in a little food for thought.
