Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Morrison Clarke (born 29 July 1948) is a New Zealand-born Australian comedian, writer, and satirist. He was born in Palmerston North, New Zealand, and has lived in Australia since the late 1970s. He is a regular actor and writer on Australian TV. He first became known during the mid-to-late 1970s for portraying a laconic farmer called Fred Dagg on stage, film and television. Gumboot and singlet-clad, Dagg had seven sons, all named 'Trev'. Clarke also recorded a series of records and cassettes, and published several books as Dagg. Thirty years after its release, the first Fred Dagg album (modestly titled Fred Dagg's Greatest Hits (1976)) remains one of New Zealand's biggest selling records. Some of his earliest appearances as Fred Dagg in the Australian media were on the ABC's The Science Show and Dagg later made regular radio appearances on 2JJ until the station moved to FM and was renamed 2JJJ in 1980. An LP of some 2JJ sketches, The Fred Dagg Tapes was released in 1979.
