Event 119


Bitingly clever satire delivered with a well-timed drollness marked John Clarke’s work which included the black singleted, gumboot-cladded Fred Dagg, the alternative national anthem We Don’t Know How Lucky We Are, the groundbreaking mockumentary The Games, and weekly skits on the absurdities of Australian political life with longtime collaborator Bryan Dawe. To mark his death, and the republication of his novel The Tournament alongside two writing collections, friends and colleagues Tom Scott and Michael Heyward gather with Clarke’s daughter Lorin Clarke, herself an accomplished writer, to pay tribute to this remarkable man, chaired by Gemma Gracewood.
