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.

Lana Walters Big Mum Energy (New Zealand)

Lana Walters Big Mum Energy (NZ)

Lana Walters is a rising star from the New Zealand comedy scene now bringing her brilliant hour Big Mum Energy to Melbourne International Comedy Fest. 

This show unpacks the first year of parenthood, all the way from overly ambitious birth plans to nappy changes that feel like crocodile death rolls. Find a Mum friend who needs a night out (many are being held hostage by tiny children with sharp fingernails).

This is what audiences had to say after watching Big Mum Energy in the NZ International Comedy Festival:

“Hahahahahaha I’m never having kids. Incredible writing and story.”

“Only show about motherhood you need to see, covers the whole ordeal frickin hilariously.”

“Joyful and hilarious I could have watched her forever.”

Lana has twice been nominated for the Billy T Award, which recognises outstanding potential by the NZ International Comedy Festival

She works as a comedy writer for The Project NZ on which she makes regular appearances as well as local panel show 7 Days. She has also performed in the NZ Comedy Gala and The Great Comedy Debate.

Strictly for audiences 15+
