    RIP Wazza.... I was resently watching the (Fat Pizza type series) Housos where he played Wazza and he was rather entertaining in that. I have seen him in a lot and always enjoyed his shows. I was unaware that he was fighting Cancer though... I saw this last night and came as a shock to me.

    Wow!!.... I have met him a couple of times in very social situations.... unlike most celebrities I found him a very genuine person and one that wasn't scared to let his hair down while on show...
    Came as a shock to me as well!...

    Yep, he started a whole revival of the Aussie "Shorts and Walk socks" look, a thing not seen since the seventies. RIP Turps, another fine entertainer who will be missed.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?
