Australia has long had an established stand up comedy circuit, with internationally recognised Comedy Festivals. Freelance journalist Geoff Bartlett set out to speak with Australia’s funny men and women, and see what makes them tick. The result is Comedians In the Mist, a series of thoughtful, provoking and very entertaining conversations with the seriously funny performers of Australia. Interviews include: Wendy Harmer, John Clarke, Magda Szubanski, Billy Birmingham (The 12th Man), Tommy Dean, Amanda Keller, Mikey Robins, Peter Berner, Vince Sorrenti, Anthony Morgan, Paul McDermott, Red Symons, Mary Coustas (Effie), Greg Fleet, Mark Trevorrow (Bob Downe), Jean Kittson, Akmal Saleh, Julia Morris, Greig Pickhaver (HG Nelson), Trevor Crook and Sue Ann Post. Each comedian details their experiences in the comedy scene in Australia, recalling first nights, performances when no one laughed and career moves in an unpredictable and volatile industry. Comedians In the mist is an insider’s view of the rise of comedy in Australia from the men and women who are blazing their own trail at the forefront of the profession.
