Bryan Dawe's Biography

Bryan Dawe is one of Australia’s finest political satirists. He has enjoyed a long, successful career writing and performing on national radio, television and film. Best-known for his work with John Clarke on the ABC’s 7.30 Report where they prick 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.   His current exhibition 'Interval' is showing until February 24th at Monash Gallery of Art at Wheelers Hill in Victoria (www.bryandawe.com.au). The show tours to Canberra, Sydney and Queensland in the second part of 2008.

 

Bryan’s sharp wit and observation together with his flexibility and unique performances make him a popular addition to any corporate event.  His obvious talent lends itself to MC, facilitator, hypothetical moderator, conference speaker and after dinner entertainer.

 

Bryan has performed Master of Ceremony and Facilitator roles at countless national and international dinners and conferences over the past 15 years. Clients have included legal, corporate, publishing and the arts sectors in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Canada.
