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.

Cherese Sonkkila Fruition

Cherese Sonkkila Fruition

Cherese is just a girl, standing in front of an orange, asking it to make out with her.

Join citric acid daredevil, Cherese Sonkkila (Fresh and Fruity, Leggywegs), for her debut solo show. A comedy show that tastes like strawberries on a summer evening. 

Fruition is a silly smoothie of ridiculous characters, hot dance moves and useless fruit facts. But also asks the serious question: what if all your juiciest dreams came true? 

This show is her Fruition. But it is also yours.

Come and get a taste of this zesty, thirst-quenching hour of laughs. 

Developed with: Paul Bourke and Sharnema Nougar
