From Crime to Com­edy

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

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.
