Australian actor, satirist and comedian, with a career spanning five decades. He has had many theatre, television and film roles, and has been listed as a National Living Treasure. He is best known as the seemingly naive celebrity interviewer Norman Gunston, through whom he pioneered the "ambush interviewer" technique since followed by many others. He received a Gold Logie award for the television Norman Gunston Show (1975-1979) in which he developed the character. He is also famed for his role of the hapless Arthur Beare in the television sitcom Mother and Son (1984-1994). Appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2003 for service to the community in the mental health field and to the arts as an entertainer, he has also been a board member of the Australian mental health organisation beyondblue.
