Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

RAW Comedy National Grand Final

The bravest and boldest new comedians have walked the comedy highwire all the way to the 2018 RAW Comedy National Grand Final! They’ve tested their skill and stamina through heats and semis, ready and raring to put their best foot forward for the final of Australia’s largest national open mic competition.

The winner of this exhilarating competition will land themselves a trip to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. With past competitors including Tom Ballard, Hannah Gadsby, Ronny Chieng, Josh Thomas, Celia Pacquola, Luke McGregor, Demi Lardner and Luke Heggie, you can see that RAW really helps to strike that perfect comedy balance!

It’s comedy with no fear and no safety net – come along to see what new heights will be reached.

Hosted by Ivan Aristeguieta
