Satirist John Clarke dies aged 68.

Celebrated satirist and comedian John Clarke has died suddenly, aged 68.

Iconic comedy duo John Clarke and Bryan Dawe entertained audiences with their political satire skits for over 25 years. We've collated some of their most loved segments and classic exchanges.
Clarke died from natural causes while bushwalking in Victoria over the weekend, the ABC said.


A wonderful early sketch by Clarke & Dawe:

A clever, even brilliant, satirist, loved by so many in Australia and New Zealand. Too young to leave us, he will be sadly missed. Maybe even by some of the politicians he satirised so cleverly.

RIP John Clarke, a master of his profession.
