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.

Mary Tobin Presents...

John Hastings Comedian John (CAN)

John Hastings is back! He returns to Melbourne International Comedy Festival with a brand-new hour about friendship, childhood and poop (probably).

Fresh from a near sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, John has also appeared twice at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, once on America's Got Talent and his clips online have been viewed over 10 million times. Don’t believe he is any good? Look what these people said.
