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.

Catherine McClintock Not Cool (Australia,Canada)

Catherine McClintock Not Cool (AUS,CAN)

Two-time RAW Comedy State Finalist Catherine McClintock is not cool. Who decides what’s cool, anyway? With two successful stand-up shows under her elasticated waistband, Catherine presents a new show that pokes fun at the not cool in all of us and in life.

Have you ever played Trivial Pursuit by yourself for fun? Catherine has and many other not cool things. Funny and relatable, she wears many hats on her objectively giant head – comedian, nurse, mum, Canadian, body acceptance and chronic illness advocate. She has a weird autoimmune disease nobody can pronounce called dermatomyositis. 

Catherine's previous stand-up hours Burst and Please and Thank Yous played to sold out shows and glowing reviews. She has performed throughout Australia and North America, supporting acts such as Claire Hooper, Judith Lucy and Geraldine Hickey. 

“Delightfully deceptive.” Geraldine Hickey

'Sassy, filthy and very funny (and a little bit sorry, not sorry).' Upside Adelaide

Please note, the following performances will be filmed: Fri 19 Apr & Sat 20 Apr.
Suitable for audiences 15+

This show contains: Death and grief, Drug references, Occasional coarse language, Strong sexual references.
