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.

Elf Lyons Raven (United Kingdom)

Century presents

Elf Lyons Raven (UK)

Nominee Best Show 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Awards

"Monsters are real. Ghosts are real too. They live inside us and sometimes, they win." Stephen King 

Part mad clown comedy spectacle, part Hammer horror, in Raven  Elf becomes your own personal Pennywise as she merges horror, clowning and storytelling to make you laugh and shiver in equal measure. 

Get a glass of Red Rum, bring your pal Tony and laugh with Elf forever and ever. It will be a Misery if you can’t come.  

As seen and heard on  BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Dave, ITV2, BBC, SKY Movies and BBC Three. 

'One of The 50 Funniest Comedians of the 21st Century.' The Telegraph (UK) 

'Praise her genius – and go.' ★★★★★ The Telegraph (UK) 
'Fierce and funny fright-night.' ★★★★ The Guardian (UK)
'A fascinating, compelling, unpredictable piece of art – darkly funny but serious-minded – executed with exceptional skill.' ★★★★ Chortle (UK)
'The roars and hysterics from the audience affirm it: this swirling anthology of spooks and stand up comedy is the epitome of everything that the Edinburgh Fringe is at it’s very best.' ★★★★★ Edinburgh Festival Guide 

'Elf Lyons is a monster of a performer, and she is beautiful.' ★★★★★ Broadway Baby (UK)
