Meet Rolf Harris

Rolf Harris is an Australian musician, painter and television personality.

He was born Rolf Harris on 30th March 1930 in Bassendean, Perth, WA, Australia.

The seriously multi-talented Rolf was a competitive swimmer as a boy. In 1946 he was the Australian Junior 110 yards Backstroke Champion.

He moved to England as an art student in 1952 and there gained roles on television and in theatre variety shows. He went on to compose hits such as “Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport” and “Sun Arise”.

In 1967 Rolf was asked to present his own television show 'The Rolf Harris Show' which aired on the BBC. As part of the show Rolf would always do a huge painting whilst singing a song. This is where he came up with the catchphrase, “Can you tell what it is yet?”

Rolf often uses unusual instruments in his musical performances, and has been credited with inventing the ‘wobble-board’, a homemade percussion instrument. In 1973 he played the first concert at the newly finished Sydney Opera House.

His figure is sculpted from a sitting on 24th May 2011. Rolf donated the clothing and the wobbleboard to Madame Tussauds.
