Australian radio presenter, Ross Stevenson co-wrote the comic television series The Games with John Clarke.

He says Clarke was a genius, and without a shadow of a doubt, the greatest satirist in the english language.

"At the same time, everyone knew him to be such a kind and gentle man, so much so that when he was skewering politicians, they didn't seem to mind, because they knew you were only going to get a square deal from John Clarke".
