From Shaun Micallef, beloved host of ABC TV’s news satire Mad as Hell, comes Tripping Over Myself – an insightful and funny memoir about comedy and life that takes us through uncharted waters to unexpected places.

Comedy has been Shaun Micallef’s guiding light, his refuge, his passport, his lifebuoy, his drug, his mask, his means, his end, his lingua franca, his Self. But it’s not everything. Join Shaun on a journey from his earliest days as a gangly, bespectacled comedy nerd growing up on the mean streets of Adelaide to his rightful place today as a glittering star in Australia’s TV firmament. Though his road to success has not been without its failures – in fact, many, MANY failures – only a few of them can be blamed on others. Part confession, part apology and part guide to surviving being your own worst enemy, Tripping Over Myself recounts Shaun’s continuous evolution in an effort to outrun his own extinction. Salted with scandalous stories of treachery and intrigue in the corridors and boardrooms of Channels 7, 9, 10, SBS and, of course, dear old Auntie, it’s all told with the trademark wit you’d expect from the comedian they call ‘the thinking person’s idiot’.

'As I was reading Tripping Over Myself this morning I felt something funny was happening to my mouth. I touched it with my fingers. It was smiling.'
Barry Humphries, Australian comedian, actor and author

'I had to teach this flog the absolute basics. Embarrassing.’
Kate McLennan, award-winning writer, stand-up comedian and actress
