About the Book
This year marks the tenth season of Mad as Hell and Shaun Micallef’s twenty-fifth year in comedy. What better way to celebrate than with a comprehensive collection of the funniest scripts and scenes from Micallef’s long TV career?
Mad as Hell and Back not only features the highlights of Mad as Hell – dubbed ‘the best 30 minutes on Australian TV’ by The Sydney Morning Herald – but also favourites from Full Frontal, The Micallef P(r)ogram(me) and Newstopiä.
With perenially wicked wit, Micallef and his co-writer Gary McCaffrie usher us behind the scenes with hilarious footnotes to their most loved sketches.
About the Authors
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 five 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.
