Early Life and Career: Paul Hogan was born in Sydney, Australia on October 8th, 1939. In an attempt to appear more interesting, he has at times claimed to have been born in the small outback town of Lightning Ridge, Australia. He grew up in Sydney and began working as a rigger on the Sydney Harbor Bridge as a teenager. He has remained private about many of the details related to his career prior to entering showbusiness. His first appearance on Australian television came in 1971 with the talent show “New Faces,” which preceded the popular English show of the same name. He had observed that the crux of the show’s success did not come from the contestants’ talents or performances, but instead came from the judges ridiculing and making fun of the contestants. With this in mind, he decided that he would turn the tables and ridicule them. Under the pretense of being a tap-dancing knife-thrower, Hogan was invited on the show and made a series of jokes about the judges. Despite him only doing a little dance and throwing the knives to the floor to conclude his performance, the crowd enjoyed his unexpected, novel performance, and he was invited back to perform again. His unique routines and comedic talent caught the eye of Mike Willesee, the host of the Australian news magazine program “A Current Affair.” Willesee asked Hogan if he would be interested in doing short comedic segments on his show, and he agreed. He subsequently befriended the show’s producer John Cornell who later became his manager and business partner.
