Michael Egan

Retired South African freedom fighter, culture warrior, Shakespeare scholar, journalist, editor and author, all squeezed into one little cartoonist.

Michael Egan, PhD was born in South Africa at the height of the apartheid era. He quickly became involved in the underground resistance movement, knew Nelson Mandela and other prominent revolutionaries, some of whom later moved into privileged positions formerly occupied by whites.

After several exciting escapes, Michael was forced to flee the country disguised as a nun. He successfully made his way to the UK and gained his PhD at Cambridge on a university scholarship, He then pursued the dual career of college professor and social revolutionary, provoking academic and political mayhem wherever he went.

Having thus failed miserably at both politics and education, he now cynically rails like Diogenes at the foibles of mankind in bitter satires and edgy political cartoons. History will, however absolve him. In 2006 he discovered a new Shakespeare play, although few experts agree with him, yet. Check out his website, Editorial and Political Cartoons.
