GROWING OLD DISGRACEFULLY – a celebration of ageing through humour, story and song.

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 12.21.20 pm


We all commence ageing from the moment we’re born and when we reach a ‘certain age’ (and get that valued Senior’s Card!) it is vital that we keep those twinkles in our wrinkles.

Legendary Australian performers Warren Fahey and Max Cullen refuse to grow old gracefully and prefer to celebrate getting ‘riper’ through songs, poetry and humour.

Cultural historian, author, broadcaster and performer Warren Fahey is has jumped the  70 milepost and Max Cullen, the celebrated award-winning actor (Flying Doctors, My Brilliant Career and Gatsby being just three of his credits) is ‘somewhere in his mid-seventies’. Both are long-standing  Senior’s Week Ambassadors and believe that ageing is a question of mind over matter – if you don’t mind it won’t matter!

In their one-hour concert ‘Growing Old Disgracefully’ they sing songs and ditties about yesterday’s Australia – from both the bush and the city – and firmly press nostalgia buttons. They use humour and point out ‘you don’t stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing’.

Warren and Max have been maintaining a hectic schedule for the past two years, performing their hugely successful two-man play ‘Dead Men Talking’ – where they play Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson.

‘Growing Old Disgracefully’ can be presented anywhere – all they need is a willing audience.
