More insightful interviews with Australia’s leading citizens, drawn from John Clarke and Bryan Dawe’s weekly broadcasts on ABC TV’s ‘The 7.30 Report’
(I have checked this statement and feel the expression ‘broadcast’ reflects a dangerous and unacceptable political bias. I have therefore instructed my department and all its officers, not to purchase this book or any other books by this or any other author. Sen. Richard Alston)
Every Thursday evening, at the end of ABC TV’s ‘7:30 Report’, John Clarke and long-time collaborator Bryan Dawe conduct a mock interview in which they satirise a current political issue or personality. In The Howard Miracle John Clarke, fully paid-up national treasure, presents a new collection of interviews, spanning the life of the Howard government. These interviews are a wonderful and hilarious record of the highs and lows in the political career of our government.
A companion ‘talking book’ of this volume, under the same title is also available (ISBN 9781920885007).
‘John Clarke and Brian Dawe are veteran purveyors of political comedy…a showcase of the dry, and sometimes obtuse, piss-takes on contemporary Australian politics that Clarke is famous for.’
‘John Clarke is Australia’s best humourist.’
‘Put simply, the guy’s a genius.’
‘One of the princes of television mockery…unerring satirical skills.’
