Shaun Micallef will be in conversation with Alex Sloan on Mad as Hell - A Silver Jubilee of Sketches by Shaun Micallef and Gary McCaffrie.
2019 marks the tenth season of Mad as Hell and Shaun Micallef's twenty-fifth year in comedy. What better way to celebrate than with a comprehensive collection of the funniest scripts and scenes from Micallef's long TV career? These pages not only feature the highlights of Mad as Hell - dubbed 'the best 30 minutes on Australian TV' by the Sydney Morning Herald - but also favourites from Full Frontal, The Micallef P(r)ogram(me) and Newstopiä. With perenially wicked wit, Micallef and his co-writer Gary McCaffrie usher us behind the scenes with hilarious footnotes to their most loved sketches.
Multi-Logie award winner Shaun Micallef is a comedian, writer, actor, producer, author and bon vivant. After several years of practising law, Micallef threw it all away for a life in comedy and television. In line with his professional goal to "always try do something ... just to flex my muscles in a different area" on top of Mad As Hell, Shaun has done theatre, Mr and Mrs Murder (Channel 10), The Ex-PM (ABC), Talking About Your Generation (Channel 9) and documentaries for SBS.
Alex Sloan AM, one of Canberra's best loved personalities, former ABC journalist and 2017 Canberra Citizen of the year, is a regular conversationalist for ANU Meet the Author events.
