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.

Laurence Driscoll The Prodigay Son

Laurence Driscoll The Prodigay Son

Prodigal doesn't mean what you think it does, but Laurence can't explain it for you. He's too busy sorting through flashbacks of growing up gay in rural Australia and escaping to the city as a gay refugee. Here's hoping the healing power of laughter works...

Laurence Driscoll is a two-time RAW Comedy Victorian State Finalist and So You Think You're Funny Edinburgh semi-finalist. Laurence has opened for Claire Hooper and Bron Lewis. He enjoys doom scrolling, online validation and precedented times.
