Portrait of Shaun Micallef

Shaun Micallef

Shaun Micallef is best known for his TV comedy, including Mad as Hell and Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation.

Having conquered television, radio, theatre and film, Shaun Micallef smashes his mighty fist onto the keyboard of his soul and produces a novel of such breathtaking brilliance that if Patrick White were alive today he’d hurl his own typewriter into the sea and start a lawn-mowing business.

Shaun Micallef has become one of this country’s favourite comic performers. While still a solicitor he wrote for the ABC TV’s Big Gig (1989-1992). From there went on to write for, produce and eventually star in Channel Seven’s Logie winning Full Frontal.

In 2007-08 Micallef turned to news satire, writing and producing the AUGIE and Director’s Guild Award winning Newstopia for SBS. From 2009, he hosted the immensely popular Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation for the TEN Network.
