A Bit of a Dagg (Fred Dagg Live)

Television (Full Length) – 1977

By 1976 Fred Dagg had become a star. That winter, Dagg's creator John Clarke joined forces with the so-called Big Dagg Band and John Hore (aka John Grenell) for a highly successful 52 date tour. This half-hour TV special was recorded after they returned from the South Island. It offers a mix of Dagg quips, monologues and musical numbers. Clarke does Elvis, yodels, and ends with a rousing version of 'The Gumboot Song'. Hore brings a country feel, via some John Denver numbers. The Big Dagg Band prove slick operators, with Bernadette and John 'The General' Rangi swapping places in a scene-stealing drum solo.

You're wanted on the phone mate. Yeah, I'll take over here. Could do with a touch of class.
– Fred Dagg relieves expert yodeller John Grenell and gives it a 'crack' himself
