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.

Melbourne Comedy CN presents

Sean Diao My Biggest Fear in Australia (AUS,CHN)

Sharks, snakes or crocodiles. If you think these scare this Asian man, you are wrong. Police, ATO, Chinese secret agents. If you think these scare this Asian man, you are... partly right. But these are not my biggest fear, because my biggest fear is... Let's find out in this show.

Sean Xi Diao was born in China and moved to Australia in 2013. He has been performing stand-up comedy for many years and currently resides in Melbourne. His unique dry humor and silly comedy style have endeared him to people all over the world. Watching Sean on stage is like watching Seinfeld on Netflix with a terrible internet connection because Sean speaks slowly and his English is a bit broken, but the jokes are so silly that you can't switch to other shows. In this comedy show, Sean explores various humorous topics, including his unfortunate Chinese name, light teasing of the Australian language, applying for a Chinese visa, phone apps and, of course, his biggest fear in Australia.

Sean has appeared on Australian TV channels such as ABC and SBS, and local radio programs like Triple R. His comedy subjects include Chinese/Australian culture, specific Chinese politics that won't land him in a Chinese jail, self-deprecating humour, everyday life, gender differences and so on.

'His observations of the irregularities and paradoxes in human nature funny and endearing.' Weekend Notes
