Get your queer quota at this month's Melbourne International Comedy Festival
Nobody gets stuck into the meat of an issue like comedians… and these stand-ups really understand the comedy and tragedy of queer life.
Stephen K Amos: What Does the K Stand For?
This Comedy Festival frequent flyer is back with a new show, this time plundering hilarious stories from his childhood. Expect smiles, chuckles, big belly laughs and perfect comic timing. Athenaeum Theatre.
Jen Brister: Wishful Thinking
On this trip to Melbourne, this UK comedian wants to talk politics. She may or may not achieve her goal, but she will have a lot of fun trying, and so will the audience. The Tuxedo Cat.
Urzila Carlson: The Long Road to Freedom
Urzila grew up in South Africa, but moved to New Zealand when she failed to convince anyone she was African royalty. Now she’s coming to Melbourne to talk about her experiences. Victoria Hotel.
Julian Clary: Position Vacant - Apply Within
The Lord of the Mince is back, for one night only – and quite fittingly at Her Majesty’s Theatre. He’s looking for love, and any straight men on the turn will do. Her Majesty's Theatre.
Paul Foot: Words
He’s become a festival regular with his mullet and shiny suit, and now he brings his surreal shtick to the Hi-Fi Bar, with a skeleton in tow. Hi-Fi Bar.
If Joe Lycett Then You Should’ve Put a Ring On It
This cheeky new Brit comic has been making a name for himself back in the Mother Country, and now it’s time for us to experience his mischief, pranks, and a few alter egos. Melbourne Town Hall.
