Shaun Micallef

Logie Award winning actor, writer & satirist

Shaun Micallef is a highly successful comedic actor, writer and satirist. Both a Logie winner (2010) and a past Logie host, he made his name in numerous Australian comedies and dramas, including Talkin' 'bout my Generation (Network 10), Newstopia (SBS), Seachange (ABC), Thank God you're Here (Working Dog), The Micallef Program (ABC), Micallef Tonight (Nine Network) and in 2011, the ABC black comedy Laid.

Shaun's appeal lies in his lawyer persona. Tall, good looking, respectable and conservatively dressed, his comedy and satire is delivered with dead pan seriousness that challenges an audience's expectations.

More about Shaun Micallef:

Shaun worked for ten years as a solicitor before quitting and moving to Melbourne to pursue his dream of writing comedy. His first break came writing sketches for Full Frontal and Jimeoin in 1994. Halfway through the following year, Shaun found himself appearing on both shows. He went on to act as co-producer for Full Frontal's second series and joined the cast in 1995. In 1996 still with Full Frontal, Shaun also began to co-write for Artist Services.

During this time Shaun created such memorable characters as Milo Kerrigan (the all- purpose expert), documentary presenter David McGann, Roger Explosion, Nobby Doldrums and Fabio: The Most Beautiful Man in the World.

However it was The Micallef Program that shot Shaun to fame. The seven part character based sketch show interspersed with interviews, infomericals and razor edged satire won a Logie Award and paved the way for Shaun's future success in television.

In 2000 Shaun joined the cast of Seachange to play Warwick Munroe, Sigrid Thornton's fiancé. Warwick, described by series creator Andrew Knight as the most boring man in the world, proved the perfect part for Shaun.

Shaun has presented his own television talkback show, Micallef Tonight and has been a presenter on Vega 91.5 Breakfast with Beverley O'Connor and Denise Scott. He has appeared in corporate videos and written and hosted promotional events for some of Australia's major corporations.

Shaun has written plays for the Magpie Theatre Company (Melbourne) including Prince of Numbskills (1992), The Mystery Play (1993) and Oops I'm a Nazi adapted from David Greason's book I Was a Teenage Fascist. In addition, he has acted in plays including Amadeus, The Frogs and Boeing Boeing. And, he has moderated for the Great Debate, narrated The Sign of the Seahorse and performed in Theatre Sports.
