Graham Kennedy

Graham Kennedy, channelling Roy Rene, was the archetype for the Koches of the Australian media.

Fascinatingly, Kennedy developed this persona around rumours of his homosexuality, which both limited and provoked his transgressive, bad boy persona.

Many, like Koch, who have copied copies of Kennedy’s schtick, might be a little discomforted by this fact.
