We all know that Ty’s Toy Box president Ty Simpson is a huge fan of The Wiggles (allow me to refresh your memory, if necessary!), so it was no surprise to me when Ty was the one to forward this article along. It seems that former yellow Wiggle Greg Page was on stage last week:
HE MAY be missing Dorothy the Dinosaur and battling illness but not all is doom and gloom for Greg Page, the original yellow Wiggle.
Two years after quitting the popular children’s entertainment group due to illness, Page, 36, said he could see some upside in no longer being a touring artist doing hundreds of shows a year.
“I don’t miss travelling on buses overnight, or living out of suitcases,” he said. “But I miss doing the shows and going to places like New York.”
Page was in Melbourne yesterday, and back on stage for the first time since leaving the group, to perform MC duties at the City of Melbourne’s Christmas tree-lighting ceremony.
“This is really the first showbusiness thing I’ve done in two years,” he said. “It is a step, and if it goes well for me physically then I think it will be a big step towards getting back to doing things in the public eye.”
The article goes on to say that Page rates Sam Moran, his successor, as “10 out of 10.” I guess that makes it unlikely that a yellow shirt showdown—maybe a wrestling match of some kind—might be forthcoming…?
C’mon. Admit it. That would be kind of awesome. “Which yellow shirt shall triumph and earn the right to call himself a Wiggle?”
Oh, fine. They’ll probably just shake hands and stuff. But my idea is totally better.
