Mitchell Faircloth – Punter to punter Funny About Books

    • Comedy

Interview 7 - Mitchell Faircloth















Mitchell is perhaps best known as ‘Slim Whittle’, playing

alongside a cast including Tracy Harvey, Tony Rickards as "Con

Marasco" and John Rothfield as "Dr Turf" on ‘Punter to Punter’ –

the seminal radio show broadcast on 3RRR on Saturday mornings during the

eighties.







But his talent reach is much broader, including songwriter,

musician, illustrator and also script writer for Tonight Live with Steve Vizard

and The Gillies Report, and performing many acting roles – as recently as 2019

with Hugo Weaving in Measure for Measure, and independent candidate for the

1990 federal election!







You are up for a real treat in this interview, as Mitchell and Stella talk Melbourne comedy, life in Byron Bay and have absolutely nothing nice to say about ‘the sport of kings’!







Don't forget to check out the Stellavision website for forthcoming shows.
