Whatever happened to the Greek Adonis Guido Hatzis?

The Greek Australian character was created and voiced by Tony Moclair, now the host of 3AW’s Australia Overnight.

Tony was asked on the latest Food Bytes podcast what his old alter-ego is up to these days.

“People ring up and occasionally ask to speak to him overnight, which is always fun to do.”

“But in terms of appearances – I can’t remember the last one. I think I did it for a mate’s 60th.”

Tony confirmed there are no plans for a Guido revival anytime soon.

“There’s been the occasional popping up here and there. But I’m very happy to leave the wig and the tracksuit in the bottom drawer.”

“Every time I look at the wig, I’m reminded of the girl I was dating when I did a lot of Guido appearances, and the question she was asked most often was ‘Does he wear the wig when … ??’”

The pair created two ARIA-winning albums featuring Guido's outrageous prank calls, Do Not Talk Over Me (1999) and Whatever (2000).

The character still has a massive following, with Guido's YouTube channel attracting thousands of subscribers.

One of Guido's classic prank calls, in which the cocky 'Adonis' answers a wanted ad for a plumber, has attracted 1.2 million views since it was first posted nine years ago.
