Special Guest Artist RAY BURTON oawras rmm PAR 34 Noni Hazlehurst (in a Farrah Fawcett-Majors-type wig), Terry Bader (centre) and Chris Haywood as American cops in a sketch from ABC-TV's Jokes. Actress Noni Hazlehurst has been crying a lot lately and she's tired of it. Playing the luckless Lill Duggan in The Sulli-vans, Noni has shed buckets of tears on screen and off. "She's such a pathetic character, I found it easy to emote. I even cried when I was watdiing the show," she said. But Noni can dry her eyes and laugh it up for the next 13 weeks as a star of an ABC-TV series titled Jokes. A series of six sketch NONI HAZLEHURST comedy programs, Jokes features Noni, Terry Bader, Chris Haywood and Robyn Moase. The 24-year-old actress estimates she will play at least 100 characters. Among them are reporter "Gail Squealer" presenting This Week in Bondi; a Scottish car psychiatrist w'ho treats cars when they suffer nervous breakdowns; and a plain Miss Brown who, when she takes off her glasses and lets her hair down, looks even plainer! Jokes must be light relief for Noni after Lill Duggan, one of the original characters in The Sul-livans and now a semi-regular. Poor Lill had to get married, which made her an outcast from her family. Her husband turned out to be a gambler and a drunkard, and she had the baby while he was away in the war. Noni is grateful to The Sullivans for the recog nition it gave her. She was surprised to receive fan mail from England when the serial started screening there. The day after she had the baby on the show, a man stopped her in the street in Melbourne and said: "What are you doing out of bed? You should be at home resting with the baby." Now based in Sydney. Noni also features as a regular on ABC-TV's Play School and in religious broadcasts for children on ABC radio. The latter can provide some interesting challenges like playing Lot's wife and convincing listeners you've just been turned into salt. . Noni has been married to film and TV director Kevin Dobson for three years. They met on the set of Homicide when Noni was playing her first lead role in an episode of ' the series, and Kevin was directing his first episode. The title: Long Weekend. The couple haven't worked together as director-actress since, although they were both WE BsQm 'N ENIGMA... JAMES BROWN is proving to be something of an enigma in Australia.

Followed by free performances In the forecourt. Commentary: Gordon Boyd presented by the Shell-Sydney Opera House Foundation SF781 The acknowledged king of soul music has never been commercially successful in Australia. Yet the response to his Sydney and Melbourne Hilton Hotel shows has been incredible. It is his first Australian visit. "Ticket sales at this stage are greater than they were for Isaac Hayes and Dionne Warwick," a spokesman for the Hilton said this week. 'The demand is also greater than it was for Manhattan Transfer." At 50, Brown is one of America's wealthiest entertainers. He owns a string of radio stations across the States and a .fleet of private aircraft. Much of his income is donated to black charity causes. "His energy on stage is absolutely amazing," the Hilton spokesman said. Brown arrives in Melbourne on June 4 for a season at the Melbourne Hilton from June 6 to 8. His first Sydney Hilton show is on June 12. He is doing 12 shows in Syd ney, two a day (dinner and supper) from June 12 to 17. Tickets are $30 for the dinner show and $25 for the supper performance. Brown will be supported by the German disco group Silver Convention, which has had more commercial success in Australia than Brown. Its biggest hits have been Save Me, Fly Robin Fly and Get UP and Boogie. CHICAGO has named its replacement for Terry Kath, who died in an accident in January. He is Donnie Dacus, a 26-year-old Texan, who has played with Boz Scaggs and Stephen Stills and had a leading role in Hair.

Dobson directed and his wife was the foreign language consultant she speaks Spanish, French, Italian and German and dialogue coach. The actress is also emerging as a scriptwriter. She is working on scripts for a children's series in the Terrible Ten style, and another series about two brothers, the younger of whom is in prison. Husband Kevin is also developing a script for a feature film about a young man who leaves home in the 1970s. This makes a change, as Noni observes, from recent films where the action happens in the early 1900s. 2GB's TOP 30 ALBUMS 1. SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, Soundtrack. 2. THE STRANGER, Billy Joel. 3.
