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.

Nick Gibb High, Functioning Autistic (NZ)

Award-winning Kiwi comedian and host of festival favourite Fanfiction Comedy returns to Melbourne with a brand-new attitude.*

Nick has Tourette's without the swearing, autism without the card counting and a “fantastic hour of comedy”** that tries to bridge the gap between Rain Man and reality.

'Commands the stage easily with a practiced precision that equals some of the biggest comedians in the game… phenomenal – you’ll laugh til it hurts.' EdinburghGuide (UK)
