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.

Azeem Banatwalla Triple Threat (India)

Azeem Banatwalla Triple Threat (IND)

Azeem Banatwalla is a comedian, Indian and Muslim. He never asked to be any of these things. But as it turns out, he’s all of them. Triple Threat is Azeem Banatwalla’s debut show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Through humour and satire he attempts to solve a crisis of identity that affects millions (or maybe just himself); with observations and stories that should be more informative (but ultimately less entertaining) than TV news debates.

'Effortlessly likeable.' The Hindu

'Observational work so strong, it doesn't even take a punchline to get a laugh.' Deadant
