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.

Mick Neven Start Your Own Cult… And Other Handy Hints for the Collapse of Civilisation

JN Comedy Productions presents

Mick Neven Start Your Own Cult… And Other Handy Hints for the Collapse of Civilisation

Take a wild ride through life, love, aliens, conspiracy theory and everything you need to start your own cult. Thanks to Mick Neven the looming collapse of civilisation is something we should all look forward to.

Start Your Own Cult is about more than just starting a cult. It’s about life, love, alien invasion, conspiracy theory and 90’s grunge band Nirvana. If you’ve ever considered swapping the rat race for the laid-back idyll of a sex cult, this is your show. If you think there are too many ice cream flavours, this is your show. If you own a Star Wars storm trooper outfit, this is probably not your show. If you’ve ever watched the TV show Alone and thought "I could do that", this is your show. If you’ve ever watched Pornhub alone and thought "I could do that", this could also be your show. If you like monster trucks, it’s probably not for you.

Anyway – here are some review quotes from previous work by Mick Neven that say things about him as a performer.

'Neven’s stand up is so slick, he's seriously entertaining.' ★★★★ The Age 

'He delivers a performance with punch, humour and a heart.' ★★★★ Herald Sun 

'A roller-coaster Wizard of a ride from Oz.' ★★★★ The International Times

And now, here is a bit of Mick’s performance bio - Mick Neven has been performing stand-up comedy around Australia and around the world for 18 of your “Earth years”. He’s toured Canada and the US, performed at the Edinburgh Fringe five times and has completed three tours of duty to the Middle East to perform for Australia’s Defence Force members serving overseas. Mick is a two-time winner of the Perth FRINGE WORLD Weekly Award for Best Comedy Show. You may have seen him on television over the years, including on the Quiz show Temptation when he won $3500 cash and a $3000 washing machine, and on Millionaire Hot Seat where he nearly won $250,000 but missed out because he’d never heard of King Canute. Well done on making it this far through the 750 word website description. You’re obviously a little bit interested. Buy a ticket, see you at the show.

Suitable for audiences 18+
