Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents
Set List (USA)
Sold out shows in Edinburgh, Ireland, Montreal and London. Late-night favourite from the 2012 and 2013 Melbourne Comedy Festivals. Hit ABC2 show. The visceral improv show Set List returns to our shores to serve up more comic genius.
The show takes top comedians out of their scripted comfort zone and asks them to create comedy gold on the spot, based on absurd topics that flash up on the screen behind. From the minds of Paul Provenza (The Aristocrats) and Troy Conrad (Comedy Jesus Show), Set List is the ultimate for comedy purists.
Comedians say they leave the stage buzzing, audiences have an insight to the comedian’s creative process and dusty old material is out the window. Robin Williams calls it “terrifying”.
Don’t miss this comedic high-wire act where the stakes are higher than ever.
