Shaun Micallef: Tripping Over Myself
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.
As part of the Wheeler Centre’s Spring Fling programme, Micallef joined presenter and RocKwiz host Julia Zemiro at The Capitol for a funny and fascinating conversation about life, satire, politics and television, from Full Frontal to Mad As Hell – and beyond.
Featured music is Midnight Set by Dusty Decks.
This conversation was recorded on Saturday 5 November 2022 as part of the Wheeler Centre’s Spring Fling: A Short Series of Big Ideas program. Spring Fling was supported by the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund, a Victorian Government and City of Melbourne partnership.
