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.

Geraldine Hickey Don't Tease Me About My Gloves

Winner 2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show

Winner Piece of Wood Award 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival 

I now wear gloves when it’s not cold enough to warrant wearing gloves because I have a thing called Raynaud’s disease/phenomenon/syndrome. I had never heard of it, and not many other people have.

This show is just an opportunity to explain what Raynaud’s is to as many people at once, because doing it individually is a pain. Also, I’ll talk about other things I’ve had going on in the last year. Might yell a bit, in a passionate way, could you imagine me being aggressive?

As seen on the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Thank God You’re Here and Have You Been Paying Attention?.
