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.

Akwasi All In

Akwasi All In

Akwasi is a Cornwall born, Ghanaian raised, Perth claimed calling Melbourne home stand up comedian.

His journey to becoming a stand up comedian has certainly not been a straight forward path but in the back of his mind he always carries a quote by the German philosopher Fredrich Nietzsche’s “he who has a why can bare almost any how.”

In Akwasi's new show All In, he talks about selling everything he owned after Melbourne brought an end to the world’s longest Covid-19 lockdowns totalling 262 days to travel across Africa. Akwasi delves into the highs and lows of his trip as well as his emotional state throughout and ultimately what keeps the fire burning inside.
