The Sandman (comedian Steve Abbott) has been back in his home town of Broken Hill recently, filming a series of clips for the Broken Hill Community Credit Union. The Sandman was famous for his quirky, irreverent humour on the ABC TV show, Good News Week and hilarious comedy gigs with fellow comedian Flacco (Paul Livingston).
“I was born in Broken Hill at 3 minutes past 8 during in a dust storm” Sandman reminded us on his week long stay to film no less than thirteen TV commercials for BHCCU. Highlights of the week included a fun filled night out at the Palace Hotel with the Credit Union staff where The Sandman was true to his mischievous stand up comedy form. Steve is looking forward to a long association with the Broken Hill Community Credit Union and will be returning to Broken Hill for promotional events in 2015.
