They’ve let the superstars of Australia’s biggest comedy festival off the leash and they’re making a beeline for the Gold Coast.
The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow is a comedy oddyssey, bringing a raft of the world’s best comedy to one big show for a raucous night out. The cast includes:
Dave Williams as MC – Williams (pictured) is the James Bond of comedy. Sharp, witty and charismatic – Dave has been working in comedy for over 15 years throughout Australia and the U.K and winning awards ever since he started. With so much experience on the circuit as a host and MC he is truly adaptable to any situation – again, not too dissimilar to Bond.
Greg Behrendt (USA) – A brilliant, lifelong comedian who accidentally became co-author of the inescapable bestseller He’s Just Not That into You, Greg Behrendt should be known for many things, yet he is singularly recognised worldwide as ‘That Guy from That Thing!’ Greg returns with his signature hilarious commentary on relationships and life.
Hannah Gadsby – Hannah Gadsby is an award-winning Australian comedian who thinks quickly and moves slowly. She is sardonic, laconic and, after numerous bone crunching accidents, bionic. Her droll delivery, delightful wordplay and heart-breakingly funny, self-deprecating observations have delighted audiences all over the world.
Tom Ballard – Described as an “impressive performer” by the Herald Sun, “whip-smart” by The Age and “one of the most original, fearless and hilarious voices in Australian comedy” by Wil Anderson. You would’ve also heard him on triple j breakfast.
Elbow Skin – Comedy with a musical twist! Elbowskin is a unique musical comedy act written, created and performed by Ernie Austin and David Adams.
Their cheeky brand of musical comedy has seen them emerge as one of the best musical headline acts in the country.
