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.

William Boyd The People's Champion

William Boyd The People's Champion

At some point everyone stopped playing their favourite childhood game.

Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Marco Polo, Pass the Parcel, Pictionary... heck, even Simon Says! 

From the shadows enters William Boyd, one man-child with a dream! To give these dearly beloved games back to the adults who have kept them alive and love them the most. In order to discover The People's Champion!

The People's Champion is a show for anyone whose sense of silly sits above the serious and agrees that playfulness trumps professionalism.

Created and performed by character comedian, improvisor and clown, William Boyd!
