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.

Lara Ricote Little Tiny Wet Show (baptism) (Mexico)

Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Lara Ricote Little Tiny Wet Show (baptism) (MEX)

Winner Best Newcomer 2022 Edinburgh Comedy Awards

Winner 2021 Funny Women Stage Award

You're born, you're in it, you're dead! Symbolically! Kind of! Don't think about it right now. Right now, stay present in this moment. Stay. Present. Purchase. A. Ticket.

A surreal, partially interactive, dark (like silly dark, not edge lord dark... or is it?) and moving comedy show about what it's like to live, and what it means to care for someone if you always leave them.

Multi-award-winner, legally deaf and master story-teller Lara Ricote brings her signature "razor-sharp goofball" (The Guardian, UK) skills, guiding audiences through intricate webs of ridiculousness with a touch of political ambiguity. Lara’s blend of Mexican, American, Dutch and Venezuelan life-experience brings a refreshingly diverse perspective.

After sold-out debut shows at the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Lara’s return promises to be another hit!

'One of the fastest-rising stars on the scene... a comedian destined for great things..' ★★★★★ Telegraph (UK), Feb 2024

‘Her mile a minute set certainly lived up to the hype.’ ★★★★★ Time Out

‘This is adult humour of the best kind.’ ★★★★½ The Age

‘This razor-sharp goofball is an original gagster.’ ★★★★ The Guardian (UK)

‘Lara is blessed with funny bones.’ ★★★★ The Scotsman (UK)

And if that doesn't convince you, all of these companies have allowed her on their shows:
