Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: Glittery Clittery

These are a few of my favourite things: glitter, sequins, musicals, and comprehensive sex education and knowledge of human anatomy. Glittery Clittery is a sparkly clever extravaganza, winding all of these into one late-night party/comedy show.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: David O’Doherty – Big Time

It’s a special kind of comedy show that leaves you laughing and also slightly fearing for your safety after you leave. David O’Doherty’s new show Big Time brings just that, also demonstrating that being recognised in the street is only a positive if you haven’t just car-doored the recogniser. O’Doherty is endlessly charming and hilarious, rushing about the… Continue reading Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: David O’Doherty – Big Time

Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: Phill Jupitus – Juplicity

Phill Jupitus has finally got himself back to Australia, after a 30 year absence. I missed seeing him last time, as I had not yet been born, but I’m mighty glad I got to see him in his new show ‘Juplicity’ this time round. Opening his show in the Arts Centre with an ode to every horrible cliche… Continue reading Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: Phill Jupitus – Juplicity
