Chasing the Lollyman is a one-man show created by one of Queensland's most dynamic and funny Indigenous performers, Mark Sheppard, and co-devised with Liz Skitch. It is a joyous sharing of stories, a celebration of urban Indigenous identity and takes a satirical look at the media and popular culture. Playing a variety of characters, weaving stand up comedy with storytelling and clown, Mark pokes fun at everything from Neighbours to politics.

"It is a joyous sharing of stories, a celebration of urban Indigenous identity and takes a satirical look at the media and popular culture." - deBASE Productions, 2012

"An affable and winning actor, Sheppard’s picaresque offering is as original as it is Aboriginal, taking a light-hearted but surprisingly deep and personal look at Murri culture within a sketch framework, drawing on his own childhood in Mareeba among the Muluridgi mob." - Time Off Magazine, 2010

"As original as it is Aboriginal." - Time Off Magazine
