Yummy has returned to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival after entertaining audiences for a variety of festivals such as Misdumma, Melbourne Fringe Fest and more.

The show features a quirky mix of drag, burlesque and circus to create a show that's certainly full of the unexpected. Think oddball drag with plenty of puns, laughter and jibes mixed in with a healthy bit of circus and performers wearing knitted hats made of food (yep, hats that are crocheted to resemble food) created by Phil Ferguson) and you're about halfway there.



Directed by James Welsby (BRIEFS, Finucane and Smith), YUMMY takes place in the Melba Spiegeltent located in its temporary home in Collingwood.

Expect everything. From drag performance to pop music, outrageous costumes, dance, circus feats and plenty of jaw dropping jokes.

Stepping inside the Spiegeltent is like stepping back in time with its ornate interior reflective of the old-school vaudeville era. It's the perfect spot to grab a drink and if you're lucky, tuck into a booth with friends or grab a seat on the main floor and prepare to see something that's like nothing you've likely never seen before.

It's absurd, outrageous and definitely out there and includes performances from many Melbourne favourites including Yana Alana, Benjamin Hancock, James Andrews, Karen from Finance, Hannie Helsden and Beni Lola. The show also includes special performances by Betty Grumble, Miss Jane Doe, Mojo Juju, Art Simone and more.

While it's certainly skewed to adult audiences, Yummy is suitable for those 16 years of age and over.
