Launched at two concerts in the Blue Mountains the DVD Man of Many Hats is now available. It features one of Greg's live performances including his amazing rendition of Banjo Paterson's The Man From Snowy River in 14 different accents plus original rhyming verse, yarns, interviews and out-takes all captured on video.

As Greg acts out each poem, he literally "lives" each character.  He really does become the little boy at the footy match, or Grandma complaining about her aches and pains, or the city dude with his doof-doof music and "fully sick" ute.

The DVD contains over 2 hours and 25 hats worth of fun with a touch of serious poetry as well as performances from special guests Pat Drummond and Frank Daniel.

  • Climate Change – poetry slam-winning piece.
  • Fully Sick Mate – this could be what happens when a modern suburban youth is transplanted to the outback.
