So in amongst all the irreverence and frivolity are some pretty seriously awarded funny peeps.
If you are not sure what to see how about trying some of the following: 2012 Melbourne Comedy Festival Best Newcomer joint winners Matt Okine and Ronny Chieng are heading back to the festival with brand new shows, as is our very own (as in the Sydney Comedy Festival) Best Newcomer Rhys Nicholson. Then there are this years Melbourne Comedy Fest Award nominees including Barry Award nominees from Melbourne Michael Workman Trevor Noah and Damien Power, Dayne Rathbone and Steen Raskopoulos (best newcomer nominees), Edinburgh Fringe Best Award (Perrier) winner David O’Doherty. or even better yet the Barry Award winners, Edinburgh Fringe Perrier Award nominees and winners of the best of the Fest award at the Sydney comedy Festival in 2010, the Pajama Men.
All in all its one award loaded festival program for you to choose from.
