Not many stars have embraced their nickname as wholeheartedly (Madonna and 'Madge', anyone?), or lived and breathed said persona with such verve and gusto; I can't even tell where David Hasselhoff ends and The Hoff begins anymore.
In a world filled with interchangeable nonentities passing themselves off as celebs, he is absolutely a one-off. And that is actually pretty refreshing.
The Hoff has enjoyed a range of successful careers as a pop artist (two No 1 singles), a star of musicals (Chicago, The Producers) and, of course, as part of some of the most popular television shows ever made.
He has popped up on telly more recently; as a judge on Britain's Got Talent and on the American version of Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing with the Stars, in Australia on celebrity apprentice but it is for Knight Rider and Baywatch that he remains best known. If Knight Rider was The Hoff's big break, Baywatch was the show which made him and which cast the die for a man who does not know the meaning of going quietly.
When Baywatch was canned after just one season, sensing its potential, Hasselhoff (and others) revived the show. He became one of the most successful TV actors of his generation and brought the seductive curves of the famous red swimsuits worn by Yasmine and co into living rooms around the world. If you've ever wondered when it was exactly that dad began taking his Saturday evening meal through to the lounge, it was in the early nineties when Pamela Anderson's onesie started joining him for dinner.
So Fresh off the back of headlining the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Hoff is bringing his live show to Australia.
Described as an intimate, hilarious evening of song, dance and audience interaction. Knight Rider to Baywatch, Broadway and the Berlin Wall. Hoff-crazy? You bet it is! Come party, Hoffstyle! You'll like him, he's nice! Tall, but nice!
