Jack of All Trades, Mistress of One

Rate this:
Things were never quite the same once Aunty Jack roared onto our television screens in the 1970s, threatening to rip our bloody arms off. In this funny and moving memoir, Grahame Bond celebrates OCo and at times curses OCo his most famous creation and tells of how he found an OCyimaginary familyOCO of other brilliant writers, actors, musicians and performers along the way. Jack of All Trades is jam-packed with extraordinary characters, many of them real OCo if unknown OCo Bond relatives, and a good number of them Aussie TV icons. We become acquainted with BondOCOs beloved parents as he grows up an only child in Marrickville, meet his sadistic Uncle Jack and his legendary boxing grandfather Benny Doyle, before watching him burst into the life of a performer via Architecture Revues at Sydney University. With digressions into advertising and lifestyle television, and blockbuster stage shows like BoyOCOs Own McBeth and 2JJOCOs Nude Radio, Grahame Bond has always been an extraordinary entertainer."
