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.

Richard Mealey My Failed Career

Richard Mealey My Failed Career

Richard Mealey always dreamed of being an actor. He went to drama school, did countless community theatre and student film productions, and auditioned for more inane commercial concepts than the mind can handle. And what does he have to show for all that hard work?

An acting seminar full of advice on all the things you shouldn't do!

Pursuing a career in acting can feel like an insurmountable hill to climb, with so many pitfalls, traps and mistakes to be made on the way. So who better to guide you than someone who's already made all those mistakes, fallen for every trap and created his own pitfalls! Richard's failed at it all!

Directed by Sass Pinci, My Failed Career is about all the ups, downs and absurd moments that happen in the life of an actor. Utilising true stories, real characters and authentic (read embarrassing) footage from a career that never happened.

This is one acting seminar you can't afford to miss!

Suitable for audiences 15+
