Chasing the Lollyman is a one man show devised and performed by one of Queensland’s most dynamic and funny Indigenous performers, Mark Sheppard. 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 with storytelling and clown, Mark pokes fun at everything from Neighbours (what would it be like if a Murri family moved into Ramsey Street) to politics.

Best known for his role in the 2006 deBASE comedy hit The Clown from Snowy River, Mark Sheppard is a must see in Chasing the Lollyman. This show has been developed in association with the kuril dhagan centre, State Library of Queensland and supported by Arts Queensland.

"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." - Baz McAlister, Time Off Magazine.
