This clip from episode 1 of Crawford Productions sitcom Bobby Dazzler (1977–78), starring John Farnham as pop star Bobby Farrell, features Maurie Fields as Bobby's father, Fred.

A young Sigrid Thornton also makes a dramatic appearance in this episode as a fan who is completely obsessed with Bobby.

This whole scene has echoes of the familiar theatrical farce, with its stylised and highly exaggerated performances.

John seems at ease alongside the other actors. It's a fun snapshot of his natural comedic timing as he plays it straight in the thick of the scripted chaos.
