Best known as writer and star of Australian TV shows ''TheMicallefProgram'', Micallef Tonight, and ''[=NEWStopia=]'', host of ''TalkinBoutYourGeneration'' and ''Series/ShaunMicallefsMadAsHell'' along with starring in and producing ''Series/MrAndMrsMurder'', Micallef is a very funny man. Australia's answer to Stephen Fry, he makes frequent use of workplay, non-sequiturs and subversion of audience expectations.

Though initially keeper of a small but loyal fanbase, he has in more recent years risen to the public attention in Australia.

With his frequent collaborators, his roles typically involve him assuming the role of 'Shaun Micallef' (quite successfully), a pompous and self-obsessed man who is a satire of whatever role he is taking on at the time. This is however not a case of [[AdamWesting Adam Westing]] because Shaun isn't widely believed to be like the Micallef character.

He is also known as an actor, having starred in the short lived Welcher & Welcher series, the final series of ''Series/SeaChange'', ''Series/MrAndMrsMurder'', as well as several films.

His first novella, Preincarnate, was published in 2010. It stars Tom Cruise, Oliver Cromwell, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, Jack the Ripper, and the Loch Ness Monster.

The correct Maltese is Mee-kah-leff, but Shaun took his mother's Australian pronunciation over his father's Maltese. Why? "Because he has an accent." Shaun adopted the Maltese pronunciation for the first two seasons of ''[=NEWStopia=]'' presumably to give the show a typical ''Creator/{{SBS}}'' multicultural flavour.
