Time for some comedy.
Norman Gunston is the creation of Australian actor and comedian Gary McDonald. Gunston was originally created as a character for the Australian comedy TV series The Aunty Jack Show in 1973. After The Aunty Jack Show finished Norman was then given his own TV series, originally parodying late night variety shows, called The Norman Gunston Show, which aired, in various guises from 1975 to 1981. There was also a series made in 1993 but this was cut short due to McDonald being hospitalised for depression. Norman is probably best know for the apparently inept celebrity interviews that he made at press conferences where the genuine journalists would frequently back off and allow Norman free-rein to ask his questions. Norman also achieved some success with the release of several singles and 3 albums of songs. Norman's style was notable for 'dramatic' interjections, his inept harmonica playing (though McDonald was an accomplished blues harpist), and his use of 'gestures' - often overly literal miming and sign language of the lyrics.
Little Patti is an Australian singer. She was born Patricia Amphlett, and her younger cousin Chrissy Amphlett followed in her footsteps by becoming the lead singer of the Divinyls, and obtained her stage name at school because she had 2 taller friends who were also named Patricia. She started her recording career in 1963 at the age of 14 years, singing surf songs.
I Got You Babe was originally recorded by Sonny & Cher on their 1965 album Look at Us and as a single. In this version Little Patti tries to sing a serious version, while Norman performs in his usual style, and only just succeeds after almost breaking down laughing at some of his gestural interpretations. This video is from the end of the 7th episode of the 1st series of The Norman Gunston Show and, although there is mention of the series being axed, the show was picked up for a further 2 seasons.
