Motley is best known for his shows in the character of “Dirk Darrow”, a parody film-noir psychic private detective, including, 2 Ruby Knockers, 1 Jaded Dick (★★★★★ “Tour de force performance” - Australian Stage). McCullagh has also brought several successful comedy magic shows to the Adelaide Fringe includingThe Swindler (“Good solid entertainment” -The Advertiser).
