For the first time, Shaun Micallef invites audiences behind the character to meet the real him. The man behind the joke we rarely get to see.

In his nearly thirty-year career as a comedian, the beloved host of ABC TV’s Mad as Hell, has never thought to write about himself. He’s always been there somewhere in the roles he’s played and the dialogue he’s given himself and others. Abstracted, coded, sometimes the inverse of what he thinks or feels, there he is in full view, yet concealed.

Shaun now presents Tripping Over Myself – an insightful and funny memoir about comedy and life that takes us through uncharted waters to unexpected places.

From his early years as a gangly, bespectacled nerd in suburban Adelaide to the giddy heights of national TV stardom, Shaun regales us with his experiences and his continuous reinvention through humour with… well, humour.

Live in conversation with comedian Mel Buttle, hear Shaun talk candidly about his successes and failures, loves and losses, along with tales of wine, women, song, and eccentric dancing. Behind the persona of one of Australia’s best-loved comedians lurks, as you will discover, an idiot.
