Welcher & Welcher now available on DVD!

It has been eight years coming, but the very clever sitcom written and staring Shaun, Welcher & Welcher, is now available for you to watch over and over in the private space that is your own home.

The only special feature is outtakes, but the series itself is worth it for any Shaun fan.

So get to your local store (or online*), exchange your cash for a plastic disc in a plastic box, put the disc in the thing that looks like a cup tray and prepare to laugh and laugh. And cry. Then laugh again.

* Spotted at EzyDVD ($30) and JB Online ($25) – “Pretty Good for the Price!

Shaun-friend-a-palooza on The Librarians

Filming is underway on the third season of The Librarians, which has been a stand-out sitcom for the Australian ABC.

The show is full of Micallef-alumni/friends: the show is written by and stars Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope, and also stars Roz Hammond. And Tony Martin is set to direct a few episodes this season. If only Shaun had a small role, it would definitely be describable as a ‘palooza’!

Stay tuned for it later this year.

Shaun’s Logie speech

Obviously, Shaun won a silver Logie this year for most popular presenter – and he very much deserved it! Sure, it wasn’t the Gold, but when the winner is a soapie star, what chance does real talent have?

I believe this is his first individual Logie; previous wins were for the legendary Micallef Prog(r)am(me).

If you haven’t seen his speech, you should be ashamed. Then you should watch it on YouTube (or is it Sir Laurence Olivier’s speech?!) 🙂

Your Gen returns in August

According to The Age Green Guide (27/5/10), Talkin’ bout Your Generation will return to Channel Ten in August.

This was mentioned in an article about Charlie Pickering, who is the Gen X captain and a host of The 7pm Project. In the article, Micallef describes Pickering as “clever, fast and funny” and suggests that one day “he’ll be hosting a ‘Tonight’ show … where he can use all his talents.”

Welcome to the website

I’ve set-up this site as a new place for fans of one of the greatest comedians/entertainers to find out the latest news.

Since mid-2009, there has been no activity at the original unofficial-home (shaunmicallef.com), and with no way to contact the webmaster. Hence – this site!

For now, this site is pretty simple, but hopefully I can add to it over the coming days/weeks/months. You can too – email me.
