Shaun Micallef is an Australian comedian, writer, actor, producer, author and bon vivant. After a decade of practising law, Micallef threw it all away for a life in comedy. Since 1994 he has graced Australian TV screens in shows such as Full Frontal and Sea Change, then on to his own gigs on the Micallef P(r)ogram(me), Micallef Tonight and Newstopia, as well as other people’s shows like Thank God You’re Here and Talkin’ Bout Your Generation. His crowning glory has been hosting beloved TV news satire Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell for the last fourteen seasons. For his efforts, he has been showered with Logies, AFIs, AACTAs and even an Aria. Somehow he also found time to host a radio show, appear in films and take to the legitimate stage. He’s also written six books, including his memoir Tripping Over Myself.
