After several years of practising law, Shaun Micallef threw
it all away for a life in comedy and television. Since '94 he has
graced Aussie screens in shows such as Full Frontal, Sea
Change, the short-loved but brilliant Micallef Tonight
and the immensely popular Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation - to
name but a few. He has been nominated for a number of AFI, Logie,
AACTA, Auggie and Director's Guild awards and even won some of
them. He enjoys wind farming and has written six books. Oh yes, and
he also does a show called Shaun Micallef's Mad as Hell.
Gary McCaffrie turned his back on a career editing Industrial Commission transcripts in Tasmania to try writing comedy for television. He has tried writing it for Fast Forward, Full Frontal, Jimeoin, The Micallef P(r))ogram(me), Micallef Tonight and Shaun Micallef's Mad As Hell, along with several other less revered shows that IMDb insists on listing. He is the only TV comedy writer to be a gold member of the West Adelaide Football Club, and still feels the pull of the Tasmanian public service.
