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.

Dougie Baldwin Detention

Dougie Baldwin Detention

Best Comedy Nominee 2022 Melbourne Fringe 

Dear Parent or Guardian,

This is to advise of your child's misconduct in class. In an effort to emphasise the importance of good conduct, your child will be required to attend after school detention on a date selected between the 27th of March and the 7th of April. 

Please be aware this is mandatory and absence from after school detention without a valid reason will result in further punishment.

Vice Principal Baldwin

DETENTION is the latest interactive character comedy show brought to you by Limbo Comedy. The entire hour will be set in detention and involves audience participation from you, 'the students'. If you choose not to be an active participant you will have the option to say so.

'Madcap randomness, although one feels that every movement and word has been thought out with the increasing mastery of their talents.' Mumble Comedy

Suitable for audiences 18+

This show contains: Audience participation, Occasional coarse language.
