Shaun Micallef: Tripping Over Myself [Booked Out]
Saturday, 5 Nov 2022, 08:30pm - 09:30pm
‘Comedy has been my escape, my guiding light, my refuge, my passport, my lifebuoy, my drug, my mask, my means, my end, my lingua franca, my Self. But it’s not everything.’
Shaun Micallef has been a near constant in Australian comedy and television for almost three decades.
His new memoir Tripping Over Myself: A Memoir of a Life in Comedy charts his journey from suburban Adelaide to national TV stardom, offering insight into a career of curiosity, reinvention and humour.
For Spring Fling, meet us at The Capitol as Micallef joins presenter and RocKwiz host Julia Zemiro for a funny and fascinating conversation about life, satire, politics and television, from Full Frontal to Mad As Hell – and beyond.
This event will be photographed and recorded for use by the Wheeler Centre.
