Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Jeremy Moses 157 Hours of Bad Slam Poetry

Jeremy Moses 157 Hours of Bad Slam Poetry

Comedic tales of disability, young grief and the lockdown-fuelled poetic obsession that partially swept Australia.

**Actual runtime: 60 minutes**

Behold the blind bard beneath the beret!

In lockdown, comedian Jeremy Moses wrote and performed 100 slam poems in 100 days, receiving moderate acclaim on social media for his searing political commentary and silly wordplay. Going on to cover one federal and two state elections, he single-handedly saw off countless Australian political heavyweights – or so he thinks.

…but beneath/behind his trademark pink beret/sunglasses lies (lays?) a visually-impaired Australian/Indian/Singaporean/Iraqi Jew with a story to tell.

Arguably one of the funniest visually-impaired Australian/Indian/Singaporean/Iraqi Jews performing at this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival” - Jeremy’s family.

Join Jeremy as he presents the funny side of living with a disability, the not-so-funny side of losing a parent and the poetic nonsense that captured his daily life for two long years!

Auslan Interpreted/Relaxed/Sensory Friendly Performance: Sunday 14 April, 2pm.
