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.

Joel Kim Booster Appearing in Headliners (United States)

Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Joel Kim Booster Appearing in Headliners (USA)

Hot on the heels of a sold-out 2023 season, this year’s Headliners are set to take the stage in an exhilarating double bill, featuring two of the most dynamic and downright hilarious comedians the USA has to offer!

Featuring Fire Island star Joel Kim Booster and series regular of Amazon Original’s UPLOAD, Zainab Johnson.

Joel Kim Booster has solidified his status as one of the funniest and most compelling voices in contemporary comedy. You can expect an unforgettable journey into laughter, self-discovery and cultural commentary every time Joel steps into the spotlight.

Along with a Netflix special Psychosexual and numerous stand-up appearances on late night TV, Joel recently co-wrote and starred in the queer Asian-American rom-com Fire Island, is a series regular in Loot and Shrill and wrote, co-produced and starred in cult favourites Big Mouth and The Other Two.

‘More electric and spontaneous than other comedy.’ Paste Magazine

‘His formal devices are clever and nicely integrated into the set.’ The New York Times

Suitable for audiences 15+
