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.

Mel Buttle Not Here To Put Socks On Centipedes

A Token Event

Mel Buttle Not Here To Put Socks On Centipedes

I’ll just let loose this year I think, how’s that sound?

You know when you’re in a cafe and someone comes in who’s friends with the owner, and they’re chatting and laughing, and you’re just standing there, clenching your toes in your shoes. Well, I hate that feeling. This is a show about things like that. Maybe going to the dump also gets a mention. That’s as specific as I can be!

Mel is a regular on The Project, The Hundred with Andy Lee, Question Everything and a new contestant on the 2024 series of Taskmaster Australia. She is also everyone’s favourite mum on TikTok.

'Buttle was born with impeccable timing, a penchant for the absurd and the ability to pick out the threads of the ludicrous in the most mundane of daily tapestries.' GQ Australia
