He was a very popular entertainer on the cabaret circuit and featured in cult 2005 movie The Aristocrats. He missed out on major TV fame in the mid-1970s when his Shampoo spin-off series, Snip,was pulled from the air before its first episode after network bosses discovered one of his its characters was gay. The show did screen in Australia and became an instant hit - but only ran for seven episodes.
