Clarke on Clarke

Australian news magazine, The Bulletin, featured a lengthy interview with John Clarke in its May 23 edition. The NZ-born wry humourist, who has lived across the Tasman for the last 30 years, is described as “surely one of the most original and prodigiously talented creative spirits in Australia.” The creator of Fred Dagg, Olympics send-up The Games, and books The Complete Book of Australian Verse (a parody) and The Tournament, Clarke is one of the best known faces and voices in Australasia. His next project is writing the script for a musical version of the children’s book Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.
