About Ron Iddles:
Ron Iddles (The Good Cop) is widely known as Australia’s greatest detective. In a career spanning some 320 murder investigations, he and his team solved nearly all of them—with a remarkable 99% conviction rate. Ron has been involved in some of Victoria’s most high-profile cases, including the murders of Elisabeth Membrey, Bonnie Clark, Jane Thurgood-Dove, Erwin Kastenberger, and the infamous Melbourne gangland killings. Described by his colleagues as brilliant, compassionate, and utterly incorruptible, Iddles got the nickname ‘The Great Man’ for his dogged but respectful approach to the job.
“When people ask me ‘what’s a murderer look like?’ I say ‘He looks like you or I’” says Ron.

The current global health pandemic has required nimbleness from the live entertainment industry. Promoters and creators around the globe have been getting creative in their efforts to pivot and find new ways to cater to an audience that desperately craves the vibrant mix of entertainment, escapism and connectedness that traditional live events typically provide.
Through professionally produced virtual live-streamed events, TEG Dainty can continue to give fans access to their favourite creators’ touring content. The mode enables simulation of the in-person experience—complete with talent live on stage, exclusive content, curated discussion, compelling vision, interactivity, and professional production—all from the comfort of their loungeroom.
Just as importantly, events like this help to keep the wheels of the industry turning by providing work for contractors, artist teams and promoter staff.
“It is no secret that COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on the live touring industry. With all touring on indefinite hiatus, promoters and creators alike have been forced to pivot and find new and exciting ways to deliver fans a live experience in their loungerooms. We have worked hard developing a different approach to live-streaming; an approach that combines high production value and unique interactive experiences.” – Brad Drummond, TEG Dainty promoter
