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.

Mister Act Oh Happy Gay!

Mister Act Oh Happy Gay!

Jayden, Simon and Allen bring you a stellar hour of divine queer comedy, featuring new sketches, old faithfuls and a gospel's worth of excellent needle drops (mainly Jessie Ware).

Following on from their debut sell-out show Am I Doing This Right? at Midsumma Festival 2023, the boys are back to entertain, inspire and alter the trajectory of gay culture forever... but mainly make you laugh.

Expect hilarious sketches and candid storytelling about queer insecurities, trashy pop culture and which Sister Act character each of us are (spoiler: we are all Maggie Smith).

It's heartfelt gay comedy at its funnest and finest. Hallelujah!

Jayden Masciulli, Simon Hawkings and Allen Dorsey are three rising stars of sketch and improv comedy, but above all else – they’re besties! With screen (Summer Love, The Inbestigators), sketch (Hit By A Blimp, KIWIFRUIT: An Autobiography), stage (the American Musical and Dramatic Academy) and improv (The Improv Conspiracy, A Very Normal Dinner With Your Parents) experience between them, their high energy and relatable brand of queer comedy isn’t afraid to skewer societal norms, while still poking fun at a Ryan Murphy show or two.
