Alan Brough in Ballarat

BROUGH Alan current

Alan Brough spoke with Garrath and Seb on Ballarat Today about his new childrens book and his visit to Ballarat

From an early age, Alan Brough wanted to be a writer. Then he decided that he really wanted to be an actor. But there wasn’t

much work for a 6 foot 4 inch guy with a slightly lopsided face and thick curly hair, so Alan tried broadcasting, dancing (true!), singing,

and being a professional music nerd. Recently, he got around to being a writer. Alan has worked in film, television, on stage and radio as a writer,
director, actor, broadcaster and stand-up comedian. He has appeared in five feature films and in numerous TV shows, and is
probably best known for his role as team captain on ABC TV’s much-loved musical quiz show, Spicks and Specks. He has also
made guest appearances on ABC TV’s Kath and Kim and haswritten for the mockumentary series The Games.
Charlie and the War Against the Grannies (2016) introduced Alan as an exciting new talent in kids’ books. The
second in the Charlie series establishes Alan as a bright light in Australian children’s books. The third book in
the Charlie series will be published in December.
