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.

Jay Wymarra AmaJayus

The 5Five presents

Jay Wymarra AmaJayus

AmaJayus is the quasi-musical, comedic cabaret special of the decade coming from eponymous artist Jay Wymarra.

Built atop of the decaying remains of the play, the show follows the inner-life, conflicts, journey and fashion choices of a young queer black boy who refuses the boxes society wishes him to occupy.

Entirely terrifying and wonderful, this show promises to traverse Jay's evolved identity from comedian to political figure, musical nerd to pansexual lunatic!

Part comedy, part ghost story, AmaJayus is a queer-feral rock opera about self-acceptance and finding where you fit, all told by a true First Nations renaissance man.

“He’s the cocky upstart child of Indigenous comedy that you wouldn’t let play with matches!” Reuben Kaye.
