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.
Liza with a Z was originally recorded by Liza Minnelli, on the 1972 live album Live at the Olympia in Paris and shortly after on the TV special Liza with a Z. Norman recorded this version in 1975 on his ABC TV show, during the 1st series, as the finale of the 6th show. He also included it on his 1976 album, The Popular Ballad Animal. The video starts with Norman introducing the song and then performs it in his unique style before ending by showing amazement that no-one else records the song.
