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.

Gabby Anderson Bad(ish) Teacher (New Zealand)

Gabby Anderson Bad(ish) Teacher (NZ)

Marking, meetings, testing her jokes on Year 9s (brutal reviews) – Gabby is a teacher who tries to do it all. In this jam-packed comedy show, you will learn what to do when a student calls you mum, how to make sure no-one eats the glue sticks and if this teacher really can exist outside the classroom?!

So pack your pencil cases, and get ready for some hilarious lessons from this Bad(ish) Teacher

Bad(ish) Teacher was nominated for the prestigious Billy T Award in the 2023 New Zealand International Comedy Festival. It had sold out seasons in both the fest, and across her national tour. This is a show you will want to have 100% attendance for.

'Anderson has a sharp mind and sharper wit.’ The New Zealand Herald 

'An extremely wholesome and insightful hour of comedy that came from somewhere totally different.' The Spinoff (NZ)
