Bryan Dawe

Australia

 

One of Australia’s finest and best known political satirists

Bryan has enjoyed a long, successful career writing and performing on national radio, television and film. Best-known for his work with the late John Clarke on the ABC’s 7.30 Report where they pricked the balloons of the nation’s alleged political leaders. Bryan was also a cast member and writer of the critically acclaimed and highly successful spoof of the Sydney Olympics, the ABC TV series The Games.

His film credits include the Australia hit comedy The Castle, The Honorable Wally Norman, and Paul Cox’s Lust and Revenge. For many years, Bryan has been writing and performing two much loved satirical characters on ABC Radio: ‘Sir Murray Rivers QC and ‘Roly Parks’ with his ‘Letter from Kalangadoo’.

Another facet of his many talents include his luminous, avante-garde photography. His first exhibition ‘Imperfect Illusions’ was held in Melbourne in 2005 and was followed in Sydney and Canberra in 2006.
