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.

Alex Lowes Banana Smoothie

Alex Lowes Banana Smoothie

Alex Lowes has pivoted careers from failed rockstar to life coach in an effort to make some quick cash.

Have you ever wanted to unlock your inner potential? Well, this musical comedy opus is here to change your life.

These toe-tapping tunes, inspiring slideshows and classy keytar solos will help YOU reach enlightenment.

It’s time to invest in yourself. It’s time to transform your limiting beliefs. It’s time to find out what’s holding you back, you piece of shit.

This is the only show at the Festival guaranteed to solve all of your problems – or you money back!*

*This is a figure of speech – absolutely no refunds will be given and we’d appreciate it if you all stopped asking.


Alex Lowes is a Melbourne-based comedian, musician and banana smoothie enthusiast.

His silly songs have featured in The Guardian, played at film festivals Australia-wide and screened on Channel 7 (technically 7MATE but that still counts, right?).

You may recognise him from his occasional TikTok viral hits, or from the time he lost $20,000 on Millionaire Hot Seat because he couldn’t name the members of Silverchair.
