Our picks of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival
There are a lot of lists out there at the moment telling you what to see and what not to see but this is the one list you need to read because... we're better than the other lists.
First up, it's none other than Noel Fielding.
Noel is in town and we have a quality source telling us that he has released another show on the down low. Don't spread it around too much. Find out more here.
Next is Daniel Kitson
This pom isn't your average funny dude, he's funnier. Go see him, you won't regret it. More details here.
This next lady has a weird accent and her name is Urzila Carlson
Born in South Africa but having lived in New Zealand for the last 7 years, Urzila has one of those accents that no matter how hard you try to imitate it you just can't quite get it. Make sure you pay a visit to the rooftop bar of the Greek Centre (where she is performing) it's really high up and Melbourne looks super cosmopolitan. Read more about the show here.
An outlier that we enjoyed this year was Katherine Ryan
She's Canadian and she killed it. It's nice to see people from across the pond that are actually funny. Book here.
Finally, Russell Kane is back in town.
He's a funny dude and there is a pug in his show poster. Do we really need to tell you more? Book here.
