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.

Eggs and Soldiers presents

Annabel Crabb 50 Odd Years of Crabb

Winner Best Events Weekly Event 2023 Adelaide Fringe 

In a half-century, Annabel Crabb has been a farm hand, cookbook author, political correspondent, podcaster, mother, defendant and intruder in political kitchens. In her show she fires off 50 things she’s learned over 50 years, from a farm upbringing (#8: Don’t Get A Rabbit) to kitchen tips (#28: A Life Changing Way To Store Spices) to life around politics (#23: When Dressing For Lunch At Clive Palmer’s House, Choose Something Non-Flammable) all the way through to ageing and dealing with grief. Lessons range from broad (#13: Life’s Too Short To Work For Dickheads) to extremely specific (#22: If You’re Doing An Event With Hillary Clinton, Do Not Drink The Glass Of Hot Water Covered With A Fancy Doily That Is Placed Carefully Backstage. It is For Hillary Clinton And Not For You).

Hilarious, pacey, thought-provoking and, as Leigh Sales says, "Who the hell would go to see that?"

This show is in a reserved seating venue. To choose specific seats please call 03 9245 3788.
