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.

Sean Collier Write-Off (New Zealand)

Sean Collier Write-Off (NZ)

After a life-ruining trip around the world, NZ's most debaucherous comedian is "fully written off."

Winner of the Wellington Raw Comedy Quest, notorious Kiwi comic Sean Collier brings his debut solo show to Melbourne. 

Hailing originally from Whangarei in the north of New Zealand, Sean began his comedy career in 2016, in a dingy pub in Christchurch. Two years later he was the winner of the Wellington Raw Comedy Quest and runner up in National Raw Comedy Quest finals in Auckland. Since then he has performed all across New Zealand, Europe and Australia, including in multiple fringe festivals.

Drawing on material from growing up in regional New Zealand, accidentally becoming a lawyer and drunkenly travelling along the borders of warzones, his show is a culmination of dark insights and comedic introspection designed to leave you feeling generally concerned about the future of the species.

'Sean is into delinquency, orgies and shoplifting.' Wellington Theatre Review

'I’m anticipating a level of rough honesty – and I get it. I do get it – though sometimes I don’t especially want to. The rest of the audience clearly doesn’t share my reluctance.' Wellington Theatre Review

Suitable for audiences 18+

This show contains: Drug references, Occasional coarse language, Strong sexual references.
