Just wondered if anyone has ever been to the Melbourne Comedy Festival. If so, what did you think of it?? (Worth going to..?)I've been in Sydney for two weeks and am looking for somewhere else to go. If I don't go to Melbourne, i'll probably head North for Brisbane and Cairns...
Well worth it! Of course, it does depend on what show you end up seeing, etc.. We went to see Bill Bailey last week, which was absolutely hilarious Unfortunately, he only did 4 shows.
It's one of the top three in the world (I'm guessing third), together with Edinburgh and Montreal.
Just a word up on a stand up comic I saw in a bar the other night in Melbourne. His name's Kai Tier, he's hell funny. He's doing a show called childhead - I saw him in a bar and he was easily the best comedian onstage all night. Does anyone know where else he performs? I've found a website for his 2006 Melbourne Comedy Festival. show, but I don't think the festival starts until april this year anyway. Any comedy junkies help me out?
