Damian Clark Stand UP (Damian Clark)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

A popular beer brand currently has the slogan ‘Good Call’. Picture the two Australian men in this advert. Imagine one of them without hair and you’ll have Damian Clark’s long-lost twin. Smiley, light-hearted and affable, Clark greets everyone entering this obscenely hot venue; his charm is put even more on display when he instantly donates his bottle of water to a fainting audience member. His best moments occur during his interactions with the audience; he is fantastic at improvising and possesses natural comedic flair. Inoffensive, conventional and enjoyable, his sunny observational humour is perfect for a group of friends with different tastes. Not ground-breaking material, but nevertheless feel-good and fun, Clark is a definite ‘Good Call’.
