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.

Jackie Hatton Virtually a Reality

Jackie Hatton Virtually a Reality

Virtually a Reality is a witty and energetic leap into the world of Artificial Intelligence, deepfakes and our weird relationship with them, in a stand-up comedy show jam-packed with sketches created using that very same tech.

After being raised on the internet totally unsupervised, Jackie brings her chronically-online personality to the stage to explore the rapidly evolving (and unregulated) tech landscape in a series of escapades involving modern technology gone haywire.

So, are you excited about a reality that's virtually hilarious? Get ready, because the future has already arrived.


About Jackie Hatton

After building a tiny following of old men on TikTok, Melbourne-based comedian Jackie Hatton (@illfection) brings her own style of absurdist sketch comedy to the stage with stand-up that will cure your crippling fear of women named Jackie Hatton.

Suitable for audiences 18+
