John Colleary was a latecomer to comedy but he was quick to make an impression with strong clever material, being a natural at accents and impressions and a charismatic understated stage persona. His writing and acting skills particularly came to the fore on radio and TV where he is extremely sought after. He is the only actor/writer to feature prominently on both The Savage Eye and Pictorial Weekly. He also plays guitar very well. It'd make you sick how talented he is and the fact that he is such a nice fella as well makes me wish I had met him during his drinking days. Then maybe I'd have something to complain about.
