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.

Big Dyke Energy

Big Dyke Energy

Prepare for a laughter-packed ride as the sensational BIG DYKE ENERGY returns after its sold-out season at Melbourne Fringe!

Part stand-up, sketch show and exorcism, BIG DYKE ENERGY is a riotous journey about being your 'best queer self' in a culture intent on bringing out the worst in you.

Join acclaimed writer, performer and internet pest Hannah Malarski as she dives head first into the unique pressures faced by queer women. From the hilariously embarrassing tale of catfishing her ex to answering the burning question on everyone's mind: "how do Lesbians actually 'do it'?"

A comedy about the power of story, pride and the dangers of our cultural omissions, BIG DYKE ENERGY is a show that will make you laugh, think, then spread your legs and take up all the available space on the tram ride home. Get ready to unleash your BDE!
