This one is painful for Australians... & New Zealanders. John was a brilliant satirist, writer & performer who came to trans-Tasman attention back in the 70s with his character Fred Dagg, whose monologues exposed the absurdity & whimsy of everyday life

For the last 27 years or so, he worked with Brian Dawe on a weekly 3 minute sketch skewering whatever news had come to light that week. Here's how they saw the Mexican Gulf oil spill a few years back



I recommend you spend 30 minutes or so watching some of the others. A lot of it is Australia-centric, but the politics & machinations are universal... Miss you already Mr Clarke. Loved your work

And now... a photo to play with your brain a little. Just wiggle your screen up & down a bit. No... with your mouse!!!!
