Gone too soon!

Renowned satirist John Clarke has died at the age of 68. Known and loved for his regular appearances with Bryan Dawe on the ABC, Clarke died from natural causes while hiking in the Grampians.

The New-Zealand born comedian and writer was a national icon on both sides of the ditch. He was first noticed in his native New Zealand in the 1970s with the TV series Fred Dagg, which was a satirical take on the post-pioneering Kiwi bloke. Watch more of Fred Dagg here.

Clarke moved from New Zealand to Australia in 1979 - as every Kiwi who can swim eventually does - and became best known for the Clarke and Dawe interviews on ABC television.



Vale, John Clarke! You will be missed.
