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.

Maren May is German (Germany,Australia)

Maren May is German (GER,AUS)

Don't miss this hilarious and engaging hour with a 2022 RAW Comedy State Finalist (who is quite aware of the stereotypes about the German sense of humour but wants you to change your mind). 

This show might be a direct result of Maren not following the advice she received as a teenager to "never date an Australian", which she didn't think was ever going to come up growing up in Germany. 

It features memories of her fellow Germans unwrapping an entire leg of ham while travelling on the train – just to cut a few slices for their sandwiches – but also tackles more serious topics such as complicated family dynamics and falling out of love, all while trying to defend stereotypes and slowly realising how many German sayings are in fact about sausages.

'Fresh comedic talent... wonderfully honest.' Australian Stage

Consistent giggles and moments of roaring laughter … clever and understated call-backs  – Hugging Comedians 4.5
