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.

Dave Woodhead Blak and White

A Token Event

Dave Woodhead Blak and White

Triple j's Dave Woodhead returns to the stage to share his unique perspective on growing up in Australia as a proud Torres Strait Islander man. While having the same skin colours of his very, very white mother.

Can Dave Woodhead heal a divided nation with his signature brand of laid-back musings and hard-hitting punchlines? Probably not, but it'll be funny to watch him try!

Dave is the Lunch host on triple j, a writer and cast member on Black Comedy, Get Krackin' and a sketch performer on The Moth Effect. Dave Woodhead can also be seen in the new season of Netflix's Big Mouth.

'Watch this space. I suspect we are watching a future comedy stalwart.' Adelaide Advertiser

Suitable for audiences 15+
