Hilariously honest, Justin Heazlewood covers it all u from starting out to giving up, running a business to burning out, the trappings of fame to the benefits of failure. As well as tapping into his ten years as the Bedroom Philosopher, Justin Heazlewood gleans wisdom and insight from interviews with more than 100 fellow artists including Gotye (Wally De Backer), Clare Bowditch, John Safran, Tony Martin, Amanda Palmer, Christos Tsiolkas, Tim Rogers, Adam Elliot and Benjamin Law. Part confessional and part rogue self-help book, Funemployed is a landmark title for anyone interested in the making and enjoying of art in Australia.

About the Author

Justin Heazlewood is an award-winning writer, musician and comic. As the Bedroom Philosopher he has released three albums including the ARIA-nominated Songs from the 86 Tram, including the Triple J hit 'Northcote (So Hungover)', the video for which scored nearly a million hits on YouTube. He was a senior writer for frankie for five years. Not quite famous, Justin is a share-household name. Funemployed is his first book (that he didn't publish himself).

Funemployed = Fun, Dark, Humorous Read.


This book is hilarious and eye-opening at once. A must-read for indie artists and their friends, parents and the arts-curious. Kudos to Justin for writing such an open account of his experiences.

Brutally Honest and Hilarious


An easy but rewarding read that is engaging, funny and informative from cover to cover. There are so many golden nuggets of knowledge and advice from credible and respected local artists; knowledge that wouldn't have found the my ears if it weren't for this book. An honest insight into the trials and tribulations of being an artist in Australia
