FOLLOW THE FUNNY – INTERSTATE TOURS AND EVENTS

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is presenting some of the biggest international names at festivals and events around Australia. Check out who’s on tour with us below, and follow the funny around the country!

DAVID O'DOHERTY

The very, very low budget Enya returns to Australia with a head full of dreams, a heart full of hope and a crappy keyboard from 1986. It has been a tough year for humanity, but he's going to fix everything. Seriously. Think of anything that's wrong in the world or with your life at the moment. Yep, that's one of the things he's definitely going to fix.

Following a Barry nomination for Best Show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2016, David has spent the year on a solo tour of Europe and around America with Flight of the Conchords. He is absolutely delighted to be touring Australia again.

RUBY WAX

Drop dead gorgeous, sassy and smart, Ruby Wax brings her new five star, one-woman show to the stage. Based on her number one best seller, A Guide To Mindfulness – A Forum for Discussion. She’s been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness; once crazy, now less so, she gives a tour of the mind – how to use it, not lose it. By the way, she graduated from Oxford three years ago (at a late stage) so she should know her stuff.

PAUL FOOT 

Professor Ketchup and his camembert piglet join forces as he tackles the big issues such as terrorism, Kim Jong-un Kardashian, immigration X-Factor and breakfast.

The multi-award winning Mr Foot has appeared on numerous TV and Radio programmes in Australia, UK, Canada & USA including Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Would I Lie To You, Melbourne Comedy Festival Galas, The Great Debate, Spicks 'n Specks, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Funny As Hell and Last Comic Standing.

"Utterly outlandish, but beneath layers of absurdity is Foot's sharp eye for satire" Time Out.

"His lunacy is truly inspired and remarkably structured... Dreams are rarely this weird or wonderful." ★★★★ Herald Sun.

"Sublime, original and brilliant" Independent. "Unobtrusively masterful stuff" The Scotsman.
