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.

Kanan Gill What Is This? (India)

Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Kanan Gill What Is This? (IND)

Indian stand-up superstar Kanan Gill brings the world premiere of his new show, What Is This? to Melbourne. 

This is a show about nothing at all. So far. But what does nothing mean? What is emptiness empty of? Are thoughts thieves in an empty house?

Off the back of his smash-hit Netflix special "Yours Sincerely", his latest special "Is This It?" Kanan’s new show will delight long-term fans and no doubt win a whole new legion of followers.

‘Insightful, disciplined, affably absurd and a great storyteller.’ Medium

‘A very entertaining storyteller, and is masterful in his systematic approach to organizing content. He milks every punchline for all it's worth, saturating his show with callbacks which makes his content extremely memorable.’ Weekend Notes

‘Gill likes to infuse his standup routines with dollops of existentialism… His jokes land profoundly.’ Vogue India

‘Hilariously relatable.’ Gulf News

‘Edgy and polished.’ Herald Sun

15+
Suitable for audiences 15+
