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.

Humans have started developing a genetically modified onion that doesn’t make you cry when you cut it. In our search for ultimate convenience, constant comfort and a total absence of pain, we’ve started doing weird shit.

Join Lewis Garnham as he tries to make sense of the world (and himself) through an hour of stories, observations and pondering.

Lewis’ comedy career has boomed this year, performing to sold out crowds at the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival.
