A Festival mainstay for more than a decade, Comedy Club For Kids should be on the schedule of any selfrespecting, chuckle loving Melbourne International Comedy Festival pint sized punter aged 6-12.
Featuring a supersized selection of performers from stand-up and sketch to musical comedy and circus, there’s something for everyone. This is cracking comedy from proper profesh real life stand-up comedians – there’ll be no knock knock jokes here people.
This year’s incredibly talented MCs include the not so nice, the not so sweet, the not so polite Grandma (Nikki Britton) and one of the country’s most huggable comedians Josh Earl.
Tessa Waters – Recently listed as one of the “Hottest New Faces of Australian Comedy” by the Sydney Morning Herald (2015), Tessa is an expert in her field displaying natural skills for honest comedy that hits right in the heart of your funny bone.
Xavier Michelidis – Since emigrating from Perth to Melbourne, Xavier has been very very busy. He has performed in over ten Melbourne International comedy festivals, three Melbourne Fringes, two Adelaide Fringes, three Perth Fringe Worlds, two Perth International Comedy Festivals and a couple of Sydney Comedy Festivals.
Tired yet? Anna Pocket Rocket – Internationally acclaimed as the flame-haired Pocket Rocket of incendiary circus, Anna Lumb is a Melbourne based performer specialising in circus and physical comedy.
There will be hula hoops! Dr Professor Neal Portenza – If you’ve never seen a Neal Portenza show, it’s like having a brain explosion fired from a comedy laser beam! If everything goes according to plan, and occasionally when it doesn’t (because it mostly doesn’t) the good doctor will have you leaving with sore cheeks.
This year’s roll call also includes Gordon Southern (UK), Cam Knight, Alex The Magician, Frehd The Clown and tonnes more.
