Ian "Turps" Turpie is a certifed Aussie entertainment legend. Most of Generation X know of him as a staple of their family TV diet in the early 1980s as the charismatic host of the gameshow "The Price is Right", however, he has been part of the Australian entertainment scene since beginning radio plays in the 1950s as a child.
Turps has been involved in practically every show business medium throughout his 50 year career; he is an accomplished actor, musician, singer and showman, performing for radio, television, film, theatre and cabaret. He is most well known for his trademark moustache, his warmth and his humour.
Recently, he has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity with Australia's youth due to his involvement with two other Aussie entertainment legends, Roy & HG, on the show "Club Buggery".
