Vale John Clarke

John Morrison Clarke.

(aka Fred Dagg) was a New Zealand–Australian comedian, writer, actor and satirist.

As Fred Dagg, he explained the meaning of life and other important stuff whilst dressed in his work clobber of gumboots, shorts and singlet. Fittingly he wrote the screenplay for the film “The Man Who Sued God” and invented farnarkling. His regular television satirical sketches with Bryan Dawe (Clarke & Dawe) are legendary. Check out ‘The Front Fell Off.’
