The Last Word: Todd McKenney
Todd McKenney is a much-loved Australian entertainer who became a household name after taking on the role of iconic Aussie performer Peter Allen in the original 1998 production of The Boy from Oz. Now he’s set to reprise that role with Todd McKenney Sings Peter Allen at The Events Centre in Caloundra on 20 May.
I grew up in … Perth, Western Australia.
The first thing I do when I wake up is … put the coffee machine on.
If I could be better at anything it would be … managing my time.
I am at my happiest when … sitting under a palm tree drinking cocktails, although I should probably say when I am on stage with my Peter Allen show!
When I am not working I am … sleeping.
I wish I could … cook.
My biggest fashion blunder was … anything I wore in the ‘80s!
Most people don’t know that I … am fluent in Auslan (Australian Sign Language).
When I was growing up I wanted to be … exactly what I am now, an entertainer.
I couldn’t live without … my iPod Pro.
My greatest achievement is … my daughter.
My most annoying habit is … biting my nails.
I laugh out loud when … I see people fall over.
My hidden talent is … I can wiggle my ears.
