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.

Grace Zhang Cult Sh!t

Grace Zhang Cult Sh!t

What do spirituality, quitting your corporate job, the Michael Jordan documentary and smoking lots of w33d have in common? They all helped Grace Zhang wake up from the hyperrational technocapitalist nightmare cult we call ‘the world’. This is her story.

Grace is an indie darling/rising star/hot girl of the Melbourne comedy scene. She was a member of the iconic Comedy Festival showcase Breast of the Fest in 2023 and is a returning Breastie in 2024. She is currently recovering from the predicament known as ‘being a productive member of society as defined by her deep-seated Asian immigrant academic achievement complex’ – BAPMOSADBHDSAIAAC for short.

CULT SH!T is directed by Claire Hooper, Australian comedy and TV icon, and (in Grace’s words) "the slayest elder millennial in the game".


Is this a cult?
No :)

For real tho is this a cult?
Yes. No. Maybe. Nah defs not.

Then why is it called CULT SH!T?
Come find out bby.

Are you earnestly spiritual or are you making fun of spirituality?

Who hurt you?
I have seen the beginning and the end. I have gazed into the nether world beyond. The illusion of separateness and duality is merely that – an illusion. Form is emptiness. Emptiness is form.
