He describes it as a Trilogy of Crap but, in essence the audience get THE PURE GOLD, the VERY BEST of Peter Goers and his 40 years in Show Biz. It's a nostalgic trip down memory lane as Goers tells yarns about Adelaide, South Australian characters and those he has met in showbiz like, Barry Humphries, Toni Lamond, Ethel Merman, Frank Thring and many more. This is a nice show, particularly for old people and he promises not to wear lycra. All three shows incredibly, sold out with five-star reviews.
