4 Must See Acts @ Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2012

Home > Melbourne > Comedy | Festivals
Event: -
So the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is at the halfway mark and you still haven't found the time to see a show? Amongst the haze of reviews and billboards, still not sure which show will tickle your fancy? Here are four shows that won't disappoint and that will appeal to everyone simply because of the sheer experience, variety and brilliance of the performers. If you can't see all of them, do yourself a favour and catch at least one of these sensations before they leave Melbourne for another year, and continue to sell out shows around the world.

Wil Anderson - Wilarious
This man simply knows how to do stand up better than most. An amazing all round performer - rapid fire punchlines, amazing energy, and meaningful topics with a positive message. He spends half his year in the US, so see him while he's here.

Stephen K Amos – Laughter is My Agenda
An extremely likeable and smooth performer, Stephen has a
seemingly effortless way of relating to any topic and making it hilarious - his show will leave you thoroughly entertained with a feel good vibe. This year is the best I have seen of Stephen.

Greg Fleet – Heroes
Greg is a veteran of the Comedy Festival, and he's back better than ever in a highly praised one hour show. Being a young stand up comic myself and having seen Greg perform live a number of times over the last few months - both headlining, as well as showing up to open mic nights and trying out material - I can say that you will be extremely entertained. Greg has the ability not just to make you laugh, but to take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Thoroughly recommended.

And one to see before he becomes a huge name - Ronny Chieng – The Ron Way. Now that I've seen the show, and don't have to worry about not getting a ticket due to it selling out (I had to book a ticket nine days in advance), I'm happy to let everyone know that Ronny's show isn't to be missed. Having only started stand up a little over two years ago, Ronny is taking the comedy world by storm. Ronny is the complete package: strong material, amazing stage presence and extremely confident delivery. This highly acclaimed début solo performance has been selling out every night, and I would urge you to see him while you can in an intimate, small setting. It won't be long before Ronny starts playing at the same sized rooms as the above acts.
