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.

Rao Morusupalli Fever Dream

Enter Closer

Rao Morusupalli Fever Dream

Rao Morusupalli's Fever Dream is an eclectic blend of humor, astrophysics, identity exploration and the absurdities of daily life. This show is a rollercoaster ride through Rao's unique perspective on everything from cultural identity to the existential dread of adulthood.

Fever Dream touches on societal expectations and the quest for self-identity in a world that constantly tries to pigeonhole us. Rao's humour is a blend of self-deprecation, sharp observations and an uncanny ability to make light of the absurdities of life.

The show isn't just a series of jokes but a narrative of growth, self-acceptance and the constant struggle to find one's place in the world. Rao's ability to mix humour with deeper reflections on life makes Fever Dream a standout. It's a show that will make you laugh, think and maybe even see the world a little differently.

A judges’ pick at the 2023 Melbourne Fringe, Fever Dream was described as a "top-shelf observational stand-up – Rao Morusupalli is a comic to watch! This show is an unmissable experience for anyone who loves comedy that’s as smart as it is funny".

'Humorously and in such a matter-of-fact way.' Bingefringe
