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.

Josh Cake Gender is a Scam and I am Winning

Ivka Taylor-Moss presents

Josh Cake Gender is a Scam and I am Winning

The best joke Josh ever told was during a terrorist attack in Paris in 2015. Josh will tell this joke, other jokes and sing songs containing jokes.

Josh Cake (any pronouns) has external identities of brown, Australian, man. All of these are scams and Josh feels no internal connection to any of them.

However, Josh is in this game for the money and power.

Josh is sticking with Australian for the strong passport, sticking with man for the numerous benefits and sticking with brown because that one is too hard to modify.

Josh will consider other options if offered a better deal.

'Josh Cake sets a new standard for cabaret.' ★★★★★ The Recruiting Officer

'A stunningly intelligent performer... bold, absurd, and committed.' ★★★★★ Red Kangaroo

'A masterful display of meticulously timed hilarity.' ★★★★★ The Bullock

'Buy tickets for Josh’s show. He’s not a scam because he delivers exactly what he promises (an hour’s entertainment). And he’s a winner because he’s a talented musician, strikingly handsome, and absurdly funny.' Australian Arts Review
