Dan Ilic

Part journalist, part comedian
Premium Satire

Dan Ilic is one of Australia's most prolific comedy filmmakers, it's his 'quantity over quality' approach that has propelled Dan to the heights of radio and TV shows in Australia and the USA. Most recently as the Showrunner and Executive Producer of Tonightly, a daily satirical comedy show on ABC TV. And in the USA he was also Executive Producer of Satire for Fusion Network in the USA and the Senior Satire Producer of Al Jazeera, a job he was fired from after using the green screen to audition for The Daily Show.

After writing a musical that made fun of the way the Australian media covered a mining disaster, the Australian media labeled him Australia's most hated man. Dan has performed stand up under the sails of the Sydney Opera House, and under rocket fire in Kandahar but is very pleased to be overwhelmed at Comedy For Change.
