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.

Hannah Camilleri Lolly Bag

Hannah Camilleri Lolly Bag

Nominee 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show

Winner Pinder Prize 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Winner Comedy New Work Award 2022 Melbourne Fringe


Hannah’s back to remount her wildly popular LollyBag – sweet, abundant, unpredictable.

Starting its adventure at Adelaide Fringe in 2023, this mixed bag of characters earned acclaim at last year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival, nominated for Most Outstanding Show and clinching the Pinder Prize – a ticket to Edinburgh Fringe. Following a sold-out, debut run in Scotland and topping it off with a season at London's Soho Theatre, the bag returns for an encore.  

Much like milk fermenting into yoghurt on a long, hot journey, these sketches have matured from travelling and are now great for your health. Stick your hand in Lolly Bag as Hannah gets back to her theatre roots and plays at Malthouse for only two weeks.
