From Wiki: John Clark
In 1989, along with collaborator Bryan Dawe, Clarke introduced weekly mock interviews to television, on the Nine Network current affairs programme A Current Affair (the interviews debuted on ABC radio). Clarke would take on the persona of a politician or prominent figure, (even if female) though never attempting to imitate the voice of the subject as in traditional mimicry, and be interviewed by Dawe. One mock interview concerning an off-shore oil spill in 1991, with Clarke portraying Minister for Shipping Bob Collins, is noted[2] for Clarke's repeated references to the ship whose "front fell off."[3]
The pair continued to do mock interviews for the programme until 1997, satirising a range of figures including Paul Keating, Alexander Downer and Alan Bond. After a break, the pair reappeared on ABC TV's The 7.30 Report in a similar format. The interviews have been compiled into books and CD releases. "Great Interviews of the 20th Century" won the ARIA Award for 'Best Australian Comedy Album' in 1991.[4] "The Annual Report" won the same award in 1992 and "Secret Men's Business" was nominated in 1997.[5][6]

The front fell off
