I had no idea who Roy Rene was before checking out this statue; a comedian who seemed to entertain people in this continent. Visit if you’re in the vicinity or know this past comedian, the statue itself is not that special.

Have you ever wondered what The Mo Awards are all about? Well, he is the Australian Comedian that gave them the name. These kind of statues are all over Adelaide & provide perfect photo opportunities for tourists.
