It's no secret that laughter is good for the soul and if you're in need a big dose of fun, the Melbourne International Comedy Roadshow could be just the ticket.

The show takes place at His Majesty's Theatre over five nights so choose a session, get a group together and get set for laughter.
Organisers promise the roadshow is all the best bits of the Melbourne festival. You know - all killer, no filler! That's the claim anyway.

You're guaranteed laughs with a cast that includes David Quirk, Harley Breen, Joel Creasey, Smart Casual and USA performer Marina Franklin from June 20 – 22 and NZ import Cal Wilson from June 23 – 24.

There might be the odd f* bomb or other rude word dropped here and there, so it's recommended that this show is for over 15s.
The sessions start at 8pm each night, except the Sunday when it kicks off at 7pm.

Joel Creasey is a gossip and a bitch.

And he’s freaking hilarious.

This 21-year-old Perth boy who’s now living in Melbourne was right at home as MC for the Melbourne International Comedy Roadshow.

On opening night at His Majesty’s Theatre, Creasey appeared in the skinniest skinny jeans you ever have seen and his sharp wit and nasal twang won over the crowd quickly.

Everyone wanted him as their new gay bestie - the girls in the audience and the guys.

Creasey used the hometown knowledge to his advantage and scored ‘joke of the night’ with his suggestion that our new waterfront development should have been named after a Perthanality.

His brilliant idea – the Susannah Carr Quay. Even the young comic gave himself a high five for that one.

But too bad if anyone in the audience was from Armadale because they copped a lashing from Creasey’s acid tongue.

Harley Breen in his checked shirt was second favourite of the night and the hottie from Bundaberg shared his experiences of being a husband and a new dad.

You couldn’t help but feel for his wife as we heard every detail of her labour. Breen shared the story with a massive hit of animation in his voice and actions.

For someone who’s been there - it was hilarious.

For someone who hasn’t had kids yet – it was hilarious and scary.

Also offering laughs at His Maj were duo Smart Casual who say a song about bad baby names and storytelling comic David Quirk who tested a theory – can you swear at customers when you work in retail?

US performer Marina Franklin, whose claim to fame is having appeared on the Jay Leno Show, provided something a bit different to the Aussie blokes on stage. She talked about Barack Obama, church and dating. (Franklin performs until Friday only and is replaced by NZ import Cal Wilson after that.)

Get your tickets to the MICFR from BOCS – it’s definitely worth $50 for a night of laughs.
