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.

Lord of the Zings: A Kiwi Comedy Showcase (New Zealand)

Lord of the Zings: A Kiwi Comedy Showcase (NZ)

Winner Breakthrough Comedian 2021 NZ Comedy Guild Awards

Winner Best Male Comedian 2021 Cartel Comedy Awards

Winner 2022 NZ Raw Comedy Quest

You shall not pass!... up this opportunity to see some great Kiwi comedy!

The last Lord of the Rings movie came out in 2003 and these NZ comedians are still riding that wave.

They don’t have a single joke about Hobbits, Dragons or really any opinions on the works of Peter Jackson, they’re just using this as a marketing ploy.

Although, they are travelling all the way to Melbourne so, in a way, their journey is a lot like Frodo and Sam taking the ring to Mordor (we assume. We haven’t actually seen the movies). 

'These are some essential people to know about.' Theatreview (NZ)

Suitable for audiences 15+
