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.

Concert Lab

Simon Hall (Yon), Sammy J, Jude Perl & Gillian Cosgriff Minuscule Musical

Sammy J, Gillian Cosgriff and Jude Perl join host Yon (Tripod) to perform three original short (minuscule) musicals – ranging from funny, to sweet, to horrific.

Mangaroo, featuring Sammy J (ABC TV) tells the story of a convict in colonial Tasmania who tries to escape by wearing a kangaroo’s skin – the guard who discovers him.

The Whitleys Live at the Corner Hotel, featuring Gillian Cosgriff (Winner of the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show) sees a brother-sister rock duo at their first gig since their father’s death.

Cryrarchy, featuring Jude Perl (I Have a Face) is about a funeral director who needs to overcome her tendency to cry at the funerals she’s officiating.

Part radio play anthology, part concert, Minuscule Musical showcases the storytelling, songwriting and performing talents of four of Australia’s best musical comedians and ultimately asks: What is a musical anyway?

Performed with a live band.

Suitable for audiences 13+
