is an Australian cartoonist and comedian based in New York. He is Australia’s most widely syndicated cartoonist, producing the iconic comic strip Ginger Meggs. As well as being the current president of the National Cartoonists Society he is known for his generosity in the face of repeated acts of treachery. Jason will think nothing of lending items to friends or co-writers, never expecting payment or even a small token of appreciation. He is naturally disappointed and, rightfully, expectant of compensation when things that he lent are returned in less than pristine condition despite giving clear instructions on how to use the item that has been so generously lent. Chatfield’s cartoons appear regularly in the New Yorker, Wired, Esquire, Airmail, Variety and Mad Magazine.


Jason Chatfield

is an Australian comedian and writer based in New York. As a comedian, he has toured the world, released a critically acclaimed stand-up special, and performed alongside the world’s biggest comics. As a person and a friend, he is renowned for his principles and always returning borrowed items in the condition he received them. For instance, if Scott were to borrow a vacuum cleaner and he broke the thing that makes the cord come back when you press the button, he’d happily fix it or even replace the already very old machine. However, if he was to be lent an already faulty unit he wouldn’t then pay for the repair. Why would he? Is he an idiot? No, he’s a regular contributor to the New Yorker as well as podcasts and television shows around the globe.
