Political Asylum Late Night Riot

Melbourne International Comedy Festival gets invaded by outrage (and outrageousness) as Political Asylum returns once more!

Featuring a fantastic line-up of smart and acerbic stand-up comics, this is the night for Abbott denialism, Labor lamentations and Palmer Party prophesising, all wrapped up in a flaming bundle of hilarity.

Featuring Nazeem Hussain (Legally Brown, SBS), Rod Quantock, Scott Abbot (The Chaser's Media Circus, ABC), Toby Halligan (The Project, Ch 10), Jonestown (Sarah Jones & Nicholas J Johnson), Gerard McCulloch (The Weekly with Charlie Pickering) and Jon Brooks...

...plus two secret guests: a fabulous and famous UK comedian, and a star of Australian TV...

Suitable for audiences 16+
