Overview

John Clarke has been making Australians laugh for more than two decades. Here is a wonderful selection of his work, beginning with the Fred Dagg radio scripts of the late seventies, and concluding with Clarke's famous television interviews of the nineties. In between are his brilliant accounts of Australian farnakeling, his golf lessons with the Great White Whale, and his hilarious Australia Form. There is an ample array of poems from The Even More Complete Book of Australian Verse, in which Clarke reveals that 'a great many of the world's most famous poets were actually Australians'.

'You'll laugh so hard you'll do yourself damage, but it's a small price to pay.' Sydney Morning Herald
