Mary Tobin Presents at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival

IN 2020 WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT SIX FANTASTIC SHOWS

Arj Barker Comes Clean
Athenaeum Theatre 25 Mar – 19 Apr 7pm (6pm Sundays)

Winner Best Comedy Release 2019 ARIA Awards
Do I swear to tell the whole truth? No, but I’ll swear while telling the partial truth. And trust me, it’s a lot more fun that way. If you truly want to laugh, then take my word for it. This is honestly the best hour of BS around, I kid you not…

Stephen K Amos – Everyman
Athenaeum Theatre 25 Mar – 19 Apr
+ Narre Warren, Dandenong, Ballarat & Bendigo. Check Melbourne Comedy Festival website for details.

Stephen K Amos is on a mission to bring about world peace, or to at least bring about an evening of peace! Bringing achingly funny anecdotes, hilarious takes on the every day and his infectious charm, Stephen will warm your cold, stiffened hearts. Join together with your fellow man and experience the universal language of laughter!

Stephen K Amos Talk Show
Melbourne Town Hall 4 Apr 5pm

Stephen K Amos returns to Melbourne with his infamous Talk Show.
Join Stephen as he chats with guests hand-picked from the theatre, comedy and music world. Expect a pinch of gossip, a smattering of banter and a dash of devilish repartee, and that’s just the host! The couch is ready, the stage is set… the only remaining ingredient is you! One show only – book fast!

Jimmy McGhie – BA (Hons)
State Library Victoria 26 Mar – 19 Apr 9.30pm (8.30pm Sundays)

As seen in Best of the Edinburgh Fest, Jimmy is one of the most established club comedians on the UK circuit and returns to Melbourne with his brand-new hour of comedy.
An analogue man in a digital world, marooned as a bachelor amongst a sea of marriages, mortgages and kids. Jimmy is trying to steer clear of a serious life, while avoiding stepping on any millennial language landmines.

Best of the Edinburgh Fest
Forum Theatre 26 Mar – 19 Apr 8.30pm (7.30pm Sundays)

Handpicked from the Edinburgh Fringe, Best of the Edinburgh Fest is an indulgent serve of brilliantly funny business showcasing the hottest up-and-coming talent from the UK comedy scene. See some of the freshest international comedic voices including Ian Smith (UK), Maisie Adam (UK) and Markus Birdman (UK). A sell-out year after year, this show is not to be missed!

‘This is the best comedy I’ve seen in years. ★★★★½ ‘ Glam Adelaide

John Hastings – 10 John Hastings I Hate About You
Mantra on Russell 26 Mar – 19 Feb 9.30pm (8.30pm Sundays)

After a sell-out season last year, John Hastings is back and better than ever.
Comedy Central’s John Hastings started from the bottom (Canada), then moved to the bottom (Britain), and has found a new bottom (America). Currently bottoming out, John is back to talk about the highs (read: none) and lows (read: many) of the past year. From losing his grandfather to open relationships to borrowing money from his mom, come watch John hit rock bottom. TW(ats welcome). Mega LOLz and most likely toilet humour.
In his Melbourne International Comedy Festival solo show debut in 2019, John Hastings sold out every single show and had to put on extra shows. In 2020 he returns, don’t miss him – this will sell out!
