DC CALLAN is the comedian behind the true story of how a comedian ended up working for ASIO! He answered our “Five With Fringe” questions ahead of his show I SPIED: TRUE CONFESSIONS OF AN EX-ASIO SPOOK.
Describe your show in 3 words:
I Spied – Classified Top Stupid
What is your show all about?
It’s a fish-out-of-water tale about a self-confessed cowardly idiot who managed to convince ASIO to give him a security clearance, and how he saw and did a lot of things he rather wishes he didn’t.
Favourite place for a post-show drink?
The Baccarat table at Crown Casino, with a vodka martini… or a dingy office, drinking cheap scotch out of a dirty coffee mug while being hooked up to a lie detector.
How would you describe your FW experience?
A nightly series of mad dashes from the State Theatre to the ‘Deen (as a regular guest in Comedians Against Humanity). That’s what life is when you’re doing two shows a night.
Apart from your show, what other shows would you recommend?
Comedians Against Humanity – where I play series of outrageous improvised characters trying to make sense of the most inappropriate material the audience can inflict on me.
Tom Walker’s Honk Honk Honk Honk Honk – he is pound-for-pound one of the funniest people I know.
Yianni Agisilaou: Teaching a Robot to Love – sure, he’s my boss but he has a brilliantly eclectic wit and a mind like a steel trap. The complete package.
Slap & Tickle featuring Iota – anything with Iota is worth the price of the ticket.
Dave Callan in Every Video Clip Ever – the man is the heppest cat in comedy… and he has a great name!
