Max Gillies AM (born 16 November 1941 in Melbourne) is an Australian actor.
Gillies was a founding member of the experimental theatre company, the Australian Performing Group, which was active throughout the 1970s.
In 1984 and 1985 he hosted the television program The Gillies Report, on the ABC. This was followed in 1986 by Gillies Republic and in 1992 by Gillies and Company. He was famous for being able to dress up and parody mercilessly a wide range of political figures, both in these television series and in two live solo theatrical performances he delivered later â€“ The Big Con, and You’re Dreaming.
In July 2008 Gillies resurrected his caricatures of Australia’s former Prime Ministers in a in a live production of No Country for Old PMs: An Evening with Max Gillies at the Noosa Long Weekend festival.
He said in an interview with The Courier-Mail that he and co-writer Guy Rundle were also watching Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd for a possible new caricature in a new production being developed.
“I’m watching him closely,” he said.
Gillies became a Member of the Order of Australia in 1990.
