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 an award-winning documentary-maker of provocative and hilarious takes on race, the media, religion and other issues.
John first hit TV screens in 1997 on Race Around the World (ABC TV). Both John Safran's Music Jamboree (SBS, 2002) and John Safran vs. God (SBS, 2004) won Australian Film Industry awards for Best Comedy Series and Most Original Concept, and were also nominated for Logie Awards.
Other shows include John Safran's Race Relations (ABC TV, 2009), which was nominated for two awards at the prestigious Rose d'Or Festival in Switzerland, and Speaking in Tongues (SBS, 2005–6). John also co-hosted Sunday Night Safran, a radio talk show on Triple J with cranky but beloved Catholic priest, Father Bob Maguire.
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.
