Mick Neven Melonhead

IN PERSON

Mick Neven Melonhead

Nevvo was born with a large cranium. Bullies on the school bus called him Melonhead. Now he owns it! After missing last year Mick Neven could not be more excited to hit Melbourne with a brand-new show. 

Mick Neven has been performing stand-up comedy around Australia and around the world for 17 years. He’s toured Canada and US, performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe four times and has made three tours to the Middle East to perform for Australia’s Defence Force members serving overseas. Melonhead will be his eighth solo show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Mick is a two-time winner of the Perth FRINGEWORLD weekly award for Best Comedy Show. You may have seen him on television over the years, including on the Quiz show Temptation when he won $3,500 cash and a $3,000 washing machine, and on Millionaire Hot Seat where he nearly won $250,000 but missed out because he’d never heard of King Canute.

'Bags of dark humour, expertly executed. ★★★★★' Bunbury Magazine (UK)

'Neven’s stand-up is so slick, he’s seriously entertaining. ★★★★' The Age 

'He delivers a performance with punch, humour and a heart. ★★★★'  Herald Sun

Well done on making it this far through the 750 word website description. Buy a ticket, see you at the show.
