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.

Burton Brothers 1925

Burton Brothers 1925

Nominee Best Comedy 2023 Melbourne Fringe

The year is 1925. The world is born anew in the aftermath of the Great War, the 'Jazz Age' is in full swing and two brothers do a silly sketch comedy show. 

Button up your glad rags and feast your peepers on this petting pantry! It's the only sketch comedy show set entirely in the year 1925! 

The Burton Brothers return with their fourth original sketch comedy show – now in Technicolor! With sound to boot! 

With big band jazz numbers, golden age Hollywood tropes and the stopgap between World Wars, it's a decade rich in material ready to be parodied and portrayed in the modern medium of sketch comedy. 

The old meets the new as the Brothers take their unique sketch comedy style and play it to the tune of the roaring 20s!

“If you don’t enjoy this show you’re either dead or dead to me.” David Collins, Umbilical Brothers

'One of the strongest duos in Australian entertainment today.' Farrago Magazine
