Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: Resurrection at Dracula’s Cabaret

As a kidlet, I used to marvel at the exterior of Dracula’s each time we drove past it on a trip to The City. On Thursday, I finally got to walk through the doors for the beginning of their Resurrection show. Waiting in line, we were already thrown into the theme of the night, with vampires winding around us… Continue reading Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: Resurrection at Dracula’s Cabaret

Gaytimes: the Queer Festival of your Dreams

Gaytimes is toted as the festival of your big gay dreams — a utopia of queer people dancing to music on top of a mountain, next to a giant inflatable rainbow.

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

Wil Anderson has been on stage at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival almost as long as I have been alive. Wil’s 22nd show, Critically Wil, kicked off at the Melbourne Comedy Theatre, beginning with a recorded acknowledgement of the stolen Indigenous land we were meeting on (which I have since heard at a few other shows), met… Continue reading Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: Wil Anderson – Critically Wil

Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: Lady Sings It Better – Story Time

I really really love Lady Sings It Better. Story Time is the fourth show of theirs I’ve seen and they keep getting better than you can believe. It especially helps that people just don’t seem to stop writing horribly sexist/creepy/aggressive songs about women, which is pretty much what Lady Sings it Better specialise in. From Ne-Yo to Shaggy, the… Continue reading Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017: Lady Sings It Better – Story Time
