The Naked Vicar

Noeline Brown is one my absolute favourite people who once entertained us on tv, performing in The Naked Vicar Show, Mavis Bramston Show, Blankety Blanks and others. She could do dry humour and keep a straight face under pressure, at times with a tiny flicker of amusement, which just made her all the funnier. With Ross Higgins and others, she carried the Naked Vicar Show, firstly heard I think on ABC Radio National and then later seen on commercial tv. I will have more of Noeline and an offshoot show called Kingswood Country starring Ross Higgins. Photo from SMH.

  2. Noeline is a class act. And always struck me as someone I would love to know personally.

    1. EC, I don't know why, but I have always thought of her like you do. Perhaps it is because she is down to earth and I do admire the way she looked looked after Graham Kennedy at the end of his life.

    1. Hels, it was quite naughty. They got away with an awful lot.

  6. I never saw much of the Naked Vicar show, but I'll find it on you tube. I loved Kingswood Country.
    I don't remember Mavis Bramston at all.

    1. River, I expect you might remember Bramston if you saw some of it. I doubt there is much footage of that on YT.

    1. Margaret, a lot of it gave the impression it was ad lib. I suspect some of it was.

    1. Gattina, no, it was a very local show. I would not want to see most vicars naked, although there was one nice one in Keeping Up Appearances, if you saw that show.

    You're not wrong Narelle. Too many humourless people these days confecting outrage, being 'offended' and demanding apologies. To them I say Piss Off Bruce. - Ian

  10. You can just tell from her face that she'd be a scream Andrew. Humour was a lot less complicated in those days, it must be quite difficult now with the 'political correctness' police watching and listening. Thank goodness there are still some brave comedians out there willing to take the risk :)

    1. If you remember Grace, we recently went to the Comic's Lounge and one performer stressed how politically incorrect he is and he did not care, but then went on to say nothing that could be considered politically incorrect. Even that has been sanitised .

  11. Love Ms Brown and her husband Tony Sattler was the writer.
    They looked after their neighbour Graham Kennedy in his decline.
