Candid, warm and wickedly funny, Noeline Brown raises the curtain on her many years as an Australian showbiz icon. Born into a working class family from Sydney's inner west, this queen of Australian comedy has done just about all there is to do on Australian TV, radio and the theatre stage.

But her story is much more than tales from The Mavis Bramston Show, The Naked Vicar, Blankety Blanks and My Name's McGooley. What's Your's?. It is about growing up in the 1950s, Sydney's bohemian world, and passions, politics and loves. Peopled with everybody from celebrities such as Graham Kennedy, Robert Hughes and Zsa Zsa Gabor to the characters of Sydney's waterfront, the cast of Noeline is as eccentric as it is real.

Although tinged with sadness, this is a joyous account of a life well-lived.
