Matt Harvey’s, The Face of Gentrification and Other Ideas is a solid hour exploration around the ideas of white privilege, cultural-appropriation and how annoying millennials are (all because they want to someday own their own damn homes, ugh, youths). There was unfortunately a last minute venue change for the show, changing from the Tickle Pit...

If you’re a fan of Garfunkel and Oates or Tenacious D, get ready for last year’s 2x Best Comedy Award nominee Shirley Gnome. She returns to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with an all new show, Taking it Up The Notch – but first took some time to talk to us about punching babies, shit...

The recipe or creating a kick-ass cabaret style, feminism charged and Moosehead Award winning show? Great friends and a whole heap of bloody marys apparently. Pop Culture-y’s Stacey Waters was able to have a chat with Tessa Waters abut her upcoming Melbourne International Comedy Festival shows and how they share a clearly superior last name....

There’s a wide range of genre that can be seen at this years’ Melbourne International Comedy Festival. You can see improv, sketch-shows, musical comedy or stand-up with a theme. If you’re in the mood for some straight up, no strings attached stand-up though, James Masters in King of Humility is probably the show you want...

Michael Hing is a pretty funny guy, even on preview nights of his 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival show, The Unbearable Whiteness of Being. I say “even” because every so often, he’ll finish a bit and then add, with a hint of apology: “It’s previews, okay guys?!” It’s endearing – but it’s easy to see it becoming...

The description of Tripod’s show 101 Hits, for this years’ Melbourne International Comedy Festival states that if you like a mixture of their old and new stuff, this show is for you. This statement is a hundred per cent accurate, which is rather unfortunate if you head there with no prior knowledge of the band....

Smell the Penguins is a show about love. At least that’s what Harley Breen told us; personally it’s the only show about love that’s contained quite so many dick jokes that I’ve ever seen. From drugs to child-raising to doctor’s visits, Breen leads us throughout numerous events in his life, almost a how-to-not guide of particular...

Demi Lardner is okay with the fact that she looks like a young boy. She’s an option for homosexuality for either gender and that’s something that she’s fine with. Life Mechanic is a hectic 55 minutes that consist of Lardner’s nonstop energetic tirade about everything from beer and her father’s somewhat skewed life talks. The...

The Comedy Theatre on Exhibition Street is a breathtaking building: the stage is huge, and the room itself is cavernous in a way that makes you almost suspect an echo will ring out if you say anything. This doesn’t stop Wil Anderson from delivering a show that feels more like a conversation with the audience...
