Our Man Boof Durdin arranged a night of nights in a quest to find a cure for cancer. Boof is off on a cycling road trip from Brisbane to Cairns, a paltry 1,555 kilometres. Boof’s powerful legs could get him there overnight, but he has to take it easy on the rest of the peliton and is doing it over 10 days.

In an effort to raise $10 large for the Tour de Cure , Manchoir rose to the occasion and belted out some great rock and roll for the packed out Laugh Garage audience. At the end of the evening Manchoir were auctioned for charity adding another $1,000 to make a total of $13,528 raised on the night.
