An exciting new comedy series created under extraordinary circumstances

Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Audible have teamed up to bring you Plot Twist. Hosted by Nikki Britton, one of Australia’s most talented comedians, Plot Twist features six short stories created by thirty of the best comedians from around the world.

The series is probably best described as comedy chain letter meets narrative relay. Each story has been created by a team of five comedians who were given a strict two hours to write their chapter. What could possibly go wrong?


Maria Bamford [USA], Frank Woodley, Phil Wang [UK], Denise Scott, Mark Watson [UK], Cal Wilson, Eddie Perfect, Ahir Shah [UK], Claire Hooper, Rahul Subramanian [IND], Rhys Nicholson, Susie Youssef, Ivo Graham [UK], Mel Buttle, Jen Kirkman [USA], Aaron Chen, David Quirk, Nath Valvo, Eleanor Tiernan [IRL], Zoë Coombs Marr, Felicity Ward, Shenoah Allen [USA], Cassie Workman, Damian Callinan, Luke Heggie, DeAnne Smith [CAN], Dane Simpson, Anna Piper Scott and Lizzy Hoo.

‘It's a wild ride inside the imaginations of some of my favourite funny people.

I think what we all want this year is to escape from reality; to be wrapped in a blanket and told a story. I can't promise these stories all have happy-endings (and you're going to have to sort the blanket situation out on your own), but I can promise you will not see the ending coming.

I have loved every second of making this globe-spanning comedy love child.’
- Nikki Britton

‘The best laugh-out-loud moments come from ridiculous surprises and Plot Twist is full of them. Delivered by thirty of the very best, this series is a joy!’
- Susan Provan, Director, Melbourne International Comedy Festival
