Wise words from an Australian comedian



"Worried about dry skin? Concerned about lines and wrinkles? Then visit a burns unit and get some perspective." Shaun Micallef

It's a shame the Micallef show was only ever shown on cable here in the UK

A spot-on comedic insight.

I've never heard of him. He has a point ...!

That was a very amusing line.

His show was very funny. This was a line that always stuck in my mind. Glad you all like it!

He is so right though, more important things to worry about than wrinkles.

jams o donnell said...

He certainly is Nunyaa!

Thanks for that. I used to really enjoy the Micallef Programme and have never come across anyone else who had heard of it.

The strange thing is that I can remember finding it funny, but can't remember a single line from it.

We're a bit thin on teh ground here by looks of it. THe not wife even has the shows on dvd. This was the one quote that always stuck in my mind

I like his name. :)

I'll make a prediction. No matter how big Shaun Micallef becomes, he will never be asked to be a product spokesman for skin care products!

jams o donnell said...

Haha that's true. I somehow can't see him as a spokesman for L'Oreal!
