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.

Dean Robinson #SWIFTTOK

Dean Robinson #SWIFTTOK

You’ve watched The Eras Tour film, you’ve listened to the albums, you’ve probably had at least 13 fights while defending blondie herself, but have you spent an hour on a random teen’s livestream, breaking down every minute detail about the TCU (Taylor Cinematic Universe)?

#SWIFTTOK is a deepdive into the hilarity of online stan culture, the TikTok generation and above all is a true celebration of Taylor Swift. Including many of Taylor’s hits, fan favourites and maybe even some surprise songs. Get in the 'Getaway Car' and let Dean take you on a journey through the eras, the highs and lows, the good and the bad (aka that 1975 singer we don’t talk about), and of course all of the 'Sad Beautiful Tragic' moments of teenagehood. 

Dean is Naarm-based writer and performer, with sold out seasons of past cabaret The Date and has worked as a performer in a variety of musicals and plays. Dean is no stranger to a festival having performed in both Midsumma, Melbourne Fringe and Adelaide Fringe, but they are excited to launch their first show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 

"Hahahahahahahah you're amazing." Taylor Swift (actual real comment from her on my TikTok) 

So drop everything now and I have one question left still, are you ready for it? 

'Sweet, funny and very likeable.' Weekend Notes

'An up-and-coming LGBT performer, Robinson brought joy to the audience through his rendition of pop songs.' Milkbar Mag
