He appeared in “Otherwise Engaged” for the Queensland Theatre Company, “Travesties” and “The Importance of Being Earnest” for Canberra’s Fortune Theatre, a season of Shakespeare for the National Theatre in Perth, and “Waiting for Godot” in Adelaide. And in London, he worked in theatre management with Lord (Bernard) Miles at the Mermaid Theatre. Among the many plays in which he has appeared: The original Sydney production of “Dimboola”, the Australian premieres of “Play It Again Sam” and “The Foursome”, “Galileo”, “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead”, “The Games Rule”, “Shadowlands” (as C.S. Lewis), “Flexitime”, “The Caretaker”, “Twelfth Night” (Marian St.), as the Emcee in “Cabaret”, Pinter’s “The Collection”, and in 2000 appeared as Jeffrey Bernard in the Olympic Umbrella production of “Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell”. He is equally well known to variety audiences, having done two seasons at the Bankstown Theatre Restaurant, “And Now at Last the Nibble Nobby’s Nuts Show” in both Adelaide and Sydney, a year at the Golden Garter, and a lengthy and successful run at the Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL!!! In the 1970s and ’80s, in a series of pantomimes, he because known as “the last of a great and dying breed, a magnificent pantomime Dame”. A long-time Talking Books for the Blind reader, he has twice been nominated for the prestigious Talking Book of the Year award. His many television credits date back to THAT notorious episode of “You Can’t See ‘Round Corners”, from “Homicide”, “Sons and Daughters”, “The Restless Years” to, more recently, two episodes of “Water Rats”, “All Saints”, the film of Peter Yeldham’s “Reprisal” and “Close Contact” for the 7 Network. June 2013 saw the eBook publication of "And the Oscar Didn't Go To...", a book he co-wrote with CJ Johnson.
