Mark Trevorrow (Bob Downe)

A Regression Session with Barry Divola episode. Sundays 12pm to 1pm.

Thu 16 February 2017

Comedian/singer/entertainer Mark Trevorrow is the man behind the blonde wig, toothy grin and polyester façade of Bob Downe. It turns out his childhood was a training ground for the character. Mark tells Barry Divola about being obsessed with soap operas, variety shows and pop radio, and trying to crack up his school friends and family by putting on shows and making his own newspapers. He plays The Seekers, Lynne Randell, Peter Sarstedt and more.
