Melbourne International Comedy Festival presents
Big Laugh Out
There’s plenty of low-cost/high-hilarity fun at the Festival with the family-friendly and totally FREE Big Laugh Out. The Big Laugh Out kicks off Easter Weekend and every Friday night, Saturday and Sunday afternoon, international and local performers with a leaning towards the acrobatic turn Fed Square into a carnivalesque corner. Bring family, friends and your childlike sense of wonder.
Stars of the stage include French Candian performance group Les Vitaminés, the utterly hilarious pair of acrobats, Sébastien Tardif and Vincent Dubé who have made it their mission to dazzle people of all ages with their extraordinary technical abilities and unique circus feats.
Guaranteeing giggles galore is award-winning clown, Fraser Hooper who pays homage to the great silent comedians but with a definite edge. This is clowning where elements of mime, physical comedy and vaudeville are fused with the traditions of the great silent clowns.
Also featuring the local talents of Asher Treleaven (2009 Barry Award nominee), Melbourne’s own plastic bag-juggling, knife throwing and nostril tea-drinking The Birdmann, Australia’s world record breaking Hula Hooper Jess Love, The List Operators (Golden Gibbo Award winners in 2009), Benn Bennett and many more.
