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.

Winner Most Outstanding Show 2018 UHT Awards 

For two shows only, powerhouse sketch comedy group Foolery Press push their public liability insurance to its absolute limit. 

A sketch comedy and satire publishing group, Foolery Press is comprised of Sweeney Preston (writer/performer), Finn McGrath (writer/performer) and Dan Crowley (writer). The brand formed after performing together in the infamous Melbourne Uni Law Revue in 2018.

With natural chemistry as both artists and friends, the three share a mutual love for clever, energetic and thoughtful sketch comedy. 

With the addition of other young collaborators into its satire writing and video production sub-branches, Foolery Press is rapidly establishing itself as an all-encompassing comedy brand, set to blow the roof off the Australian scene.

'Particular standouts are Sweeney Preston, an excellent vocalist and gifted at making some of the more abstract jokes hilarious. Finn McGrath, whose fierce focus every time he comes onstage immediately draws your eyes to him. He has so much energy it is almost detrimental.' The Dialog 

'These kids are hilarious writers and performers  see them before they’re famous or we are all dead from climate wars, whichever comes first' Andy Matthews (Writer, Mad As Hell)
