FULL 2019 PROGRAM AVAILABLE FROM 12 FEB 2019

Funny Tonne

Since 2005, the Funny Tonne has dared three die-hard fanatics of funny to go head-to-head in a race to see the most Comedy Festival shows and win the Funny Tonne title. Our current record holder is Sarah Trevarthen, who is 2015 smashed the record with 178 shows (or 59-60 shows a week)!

In 2019 we will invite 6 Funny Tonners to take the chalenge on for one week each. There'll be two people per week going head to head to see as many shows as possible within that week. This will be Friday to Friday each week, for shows from 5pm.

With a special Comedy Passport in hand, successful applicants will defy all sensible logic in this 'Amazing Race of Australian Comedy' during the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, writing reviews of each show along the way.

It’s not quite the race that stops the nation, but this chase for chuckles is one mighty amusing challenge.

To enter please fill in the online application form (available later in January), attend a RAW Comedy Heat anywhere in Australia and submit 2 x 150 word reviews of a contestant.

APPLICATIONS OPEN SOON!
