Woody Allen's Kidnapped

This is what I'm doing tonight - listening to Woody Allen stand up. This is my favourite.

His parents "snap into action" in much the same way I expect mine would have wanted to.

Woody provided me with some sweet moments growing up - they showed his movie Zelig one Saturday night at my boarding school and it kept me chuckling and grinning for much of that week and the following thirty years with it's play on a man's insecurity and need to be accepted so bad he loses his identity when he talks to people and turns into a facsimile of them.

So it's a bit like when I watch State of Origin with, well, anyone. I have no idea about the rules and mostly I'm there for the beer.

Kidnapped isn't Zelig, but it is gold. 2.52 minutes of smiles :)

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
