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.

Anne Edmonds Why Is My Bag All Wet?

Return Season

Nominee 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show

Anne Edmonds floods her bag at least twice a week and becoming a mother hasn't helped this. Where once there was water, now there is milk.

Screw your water bottle lids on tight, kick back and for god's sake, let's laugh.

As seen on Have You Been Paying Attention? and often mistaken for Niddrie’s own Helen Bidou.

'Rolling with the confidence and energy of a prize fighter, Edmonds is touchingly engaging.' ★★★★ Herald Sun

'Still laughing the next day, simply a fantastic performer.' ★★★★ The Age

Suitable for audiences 15+

This show contains: Occasional coarse language.
