Join Boffins Books and the University Club of Western Australia for an in conversation event with beloved Australian comedian Shaun Micallef on his new book Tripping Over Myself.

Shaun will be joined in-conversation with our own local comedian Janelle Koenig.

Comedy has been Shaun's escape, his 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.

From his early years as a gangly, bespectacled nerd in suburban Adelaide to the giddy heights of national TV stardom, Shaun regales us with his experiences and his continuous reinvention through humour with... well, humour. He writes with candour about his successes and failures, loves and losses, along with tales of wine, women, song, and eccentric dancing. Behind the persona of one of Australia's best-loved comedians lurks, as you will discover, an idiot.

Despite Shaun's best efforts, Tripping Over Myself is sprinkled with thoughtful insights and observations and shows us how to persist in the face of adversity or even good fortune. You will laugh, you will dog-ear pages, you will wonder, you will Google 'Jerry Lewis', you may book a trip to India, and you will come away from this book reflecting on your own life in new and remarkable ways.



Make a night of it! By attending this event you have exclusive access to the University Club's award-winning dining outlets on the day of the show. Whether it be for a casual drink and bite to eat in the Club Cafe and Bar or a more formal dining experience in the Club Restaurant, your ticket gives you an access-all-areas to the University Club.
