From recording studios in Melbourne to LA’s most esteemed comedy writing rooms, Briggs has affirmed himself as one of the country’s most talented all-rounders across music, TV and now publishing.
Briggs is a proud Yorta Yorta man and a true multi-talent – a writer, singer, actor and producer. Growing up in a small country town gave Briggs the ability to appreciate absurdity and keenly observe injustice, which he has channelled into his lyrics and screenwriting – witness Black Comedy and Charlie Pickering’s The Weekly. He also recently landed a chair in the writing room for American TV icon Matt Groening’s (The Simpsons, Futurama) new Netflix series Disenchantment.
He is also the founder and director of Indigenous hip hop label Bad Apples Music and his recent award-winning illustrated children’s book Our Home, Our Heartbeat is attracting a whole new generation of fans.
What happens when you mix THIS GUY with a YouTube sensation? Come hang out with Briggs and Nat’s What I Reckon to find out. This unlikely pair will give each other advice on how to navigate their respective industries, and riff on what they’ve listened to and eaten along the way. You might like to hear how they got to where they are, and to be honest, they’re probably still wondering the same thing. But don’t tell anyone…
Content creator, comedian, rock musician, isolation cooking champion and mental health ambassador Nat has been making videos as Nat’s What I Reckon for almost a decade. Finding entertainment everywhere from the weird to the pedestrian, Nat was taking the piss out of everything from trade shows to exploring Area 51 before lockdown saw him rescue us from packet food – and total boredom – with his hilarious viral recipes.
His videos have clocked up more than 100 million views across all channels and he now has an award-winning book, Un-cook Yourself, and sold-out national stand-up tour to add to his comedy career and work as a mental health ambassador. When he’s not filming, performing or foraging for rosemary, Nat can often be found indulging his love of playing rock’n’roll.
To whip these two into shape (and also to bring her wits to the table) will be moderator Nakkiah Lui. Nakkiah is a proud Gamillaroi and Torres Strait Islander woman, stage and TV writer, actor and director. Her new TV series Preppers will air shortly and her new publishing imprint JOAN has been established to be a home for the voices that get pushed to the fringes.
This Maverick and this Misfit (titles interchangeable) are often accompanied with a language warning. You might also be lucky to get some genuine insights, profound or profanity – we’ll see what happens.
For this year’s Game Changers series, you’ll hear from provocateurs who are using their platform for good, shaking up the norm and having a bit of fun in the process.
