Longtime collaborator and mate Bryan Dawe features in this Australian tribute to satirist John Clarke, who died on 9 April 2017. Colleagues and former Aussie Prime Minister Paul Keating share stories about Clarke as a performer and a person, including his lifelong love of "long chats". Friend Sam Neill describes Clarke's move to Australia in 1977 as being one of "necessity". There are excerpts from Clarke's work in film, television and literature, including The Gillies Report, The Games, Clarke & Dawe and movie Crackerjack. Plus Lorin and Lucia Clarke remember their father as a language lover who made others feel valued.
We didn't dress up and we didn't do voices, and that was a product of having done it on radio for a year — it just seemed silly to go and do it any other way.– Bryan Dawe on transferring ABC radio show Clarke and Dawe to television
