Charlie Clausen (born 31 July 1977) is an Australian actor most known for his role as Jake Harrison on McLeod's Daughters in 2003 and as Acting Sergeant Alex Kirby on the police drama series Blue Heelers, which he starred in for the majority of Season 12 (2005) and Season 13 (2006). In 2012 he joined the cast of "Home And Away" as Zac MacGuire.



From July 2010 to September 2012, Clausen collaborated on a free weekly podcast, TOFOP (aka 30 Odd Foot Of Pod), with comedian Wil Anderson. TOFOP was placed on indefinite hiatus, when Charlie's new employer, "Home and Away" requested Clausen not do the podcast while starring on the family-oriented soap.[1] Wil Anderson then started another (although very similar) podcast called FOFOP (as in "faux TOFOP"), with various comedians and personalities, featured as "Guest Charlie"s. Anderson and Clausen reunited for a live "podcast" as part of the 2014 Melbourne Comedy Festival, co-starring several Guest Charlies. This special podcast may be released when Clausen is no longer starring on "Home and Away". [2] On June 1, 2014, Clausen returned to the podcast.

In February 2015, Clausen launched his own solo podcast "That's Aweson" the title referring to an episode of "TOFOP" in which Clausen tried to convince Anderson that his surname rhymed with "awesome." When Anderson disagreed, Clausen took to substituting the word "awesome" with "aweson".
