Beware of Wog

Post by sange » Fri Jan 15, 2010 10:04 pm

This may be obvious, (either that or I am way off track) but was Beware of Wog based on Nick Giannopoulous? Jane's "Connie Capricciosa" was an obvious take-off of Effie, but if so, my real query lies in the Joey Spagnolo and the character Judith played (can't remember her name). Was he meant to be Simon Palomares?
I have been wondering about this for years!

99.9% sure it was Nick G. Rumour has it he tried to copyright the word "Wog" at one stage.

Apparently that send-up really, really pissed him off. Tee hee.
I just want to pop him on a bit of toast and eat him right up.

As 13 said. 99.9999% your are correct. Beware of Wog was a piss-take of Nick's shows: Wogs Out of Work, Wog Boys, Wog-A-Rama and Wog Story.

Hi Steve, good to see you haven't disappeared from the site! Isn't this where Pizza took over though, in terms of his "material".
