Humour is at the heart of every culture… and our comedians capture the essence of that self-mockery, or mockery of others, that’s close to the surface of many jokes. In his day, Roy Rene “Mo McCackie” was very “rude and naughty” but he was arguably Australia’s funniest man of all time. His vaudeville stand-ups, comic routines and skits reduced audiences to rolling in the aisles with tears of laughter following. A true genius!
