/ Word for Word / Arts / Mark Trevorrow (AKA Bob Downe)

 

This week’s guest, Mark Trevorrow may not be instantly recognisable to some listeners, but chances are you know him.

Mark has been a part of Australia’s media landscape for decades providing absolute media excellence at the Herald, ABC, and Australian Vogue, but most best know him for his stage persona, the Prince of Polyester himself – Bob Downe!

Australian and UK audiences alike will know Bob intimately from his extensive theatre and television shows and appearances through out the 90s to today, and recently Sydney listeners will have gotten to know Mark as the guest host of  the Evening Show on ABC Sydney.

Join Lisa “Dano” Daniel to discover exactly how Bob Downe came to be and just how different the man behind the polyester is to his beloved persona.

And as special bonus content: check out the ‘The Camp Courier’ below for insight into the very early beginnings of this amazing career.
