Having a laugh: the Melbourne International Comedy Festival


I've never been to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, but I just happened to be in Melbourne in time for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

So I got myself a couple of tickets, one for 5 at 5, a $5 gig with 5 acts at 5pm. I saw 5 actual Aussie acts which was hilarious, and then moved swiftly on to my next show a selection of 3 Brits in a gig named British Invasion.

Now I don't wish to boast, but I did fabulously. I spent $25, saw 10 acts (including MCs) and spent the evening just laughing and having a great time. Why wouldn't you? If I lived in Melbourne, I'd be at at least one show every week, probably more!

Now I really must get myself to Edinburgh one of these years.
