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.

Sashi Perera Boundaries

Nominee Best Newcomer 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Set boundaries. Find peace. It sounds so simple, but Sashi Perera calls bullshit. 

What do you keep out and what do you let in? Sashi is diving into high crime, religion and the animal kingdom as she explores the absurdity of boundaries.

You may not have seen Sashi live, but chances are you've seen her viral clips online. Never afraid to test backgrounds or push cultural limits, her stand-up has notched up over 40 million views.

Her debut solo show Endings earned Sashi a Best Newcomer nomination at the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and its run in Australia and the UK was sold out. The improviser, writer and yarn spinner was also featured as ‘One to Watch’ at the UK Funny Women Awards. 

If you’re still figuring out what to let into your life this year, Sashi’s unique international tales, bizarre perspectives and sharp wit make her a must-see. Join Australia’s rising star of comedy in her quest for peace.

‘Elicits rapturous applause.’ ★★★★ The Age

‘Insightful and wickedly funny.’ Time Out 

'For those of us with a fascination for international absurdities Sashi is a spectacular comic.' Theatre Thoughts

‘Delightful, low key charisma.’ Chortle (UK)

‘The audience loved her.’ Australian Arts Review

‘Ok that video was hilarious.’ Hasan Minhaj
