Get Fact is a comedy panel show that concentrates on the stuff other shows don’t bother with. Swinging wildly from Colonel Sanders to Colonel Gaddafi, Get Fact covers everything from the trivial to the truly bizarre. Host Dave O'Neil is joined by a panel of guests that includes John Safran, Glenn Robbins, Adam Zwar and Felicity Ward.
John Safran is a writer and filmmaker who always gets in too deep for his own good. His debut book, Murder in Mississippi, won the Ned Kelly Award for best true crime. His follow up, Depends What You Mean by Extremist, found him lost among radicals and was shortlisted for the Australian Book Industry Awards. His wild and hilarious documentaries, such as ‘John Safran vs God’ and ‘Jedis & Juggalos’, have received accolades from the Australian Film Institute and Rose d’Or Festival.
His latest book is Puff Piece: How Philip Morris set vaping alight (and burned down the English language).
Dave O'Neil has been a fixture of Australian comedy for more than 20 years including appearances on Spicks and Specks and Randling.
Adam Zwar is a multi award-winning actor, writer and producer. He is best known for co-creating and starring in the Australian comedy series Lowdown (ABC, BBC4) and Wilfred (SBS), which was formatted in Russia and the US. More recently, Adam created the popular Agony series (ABC) – which is currently in its 5th season. Selected acting credits include Party Tricks, Rake, Howzat, as well as feature films The Wedding Party and Rats and Cats.
The Wheeler Centre is delighted to partner with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. No jokes.
