Just as the curtains close on the funniest month of the year in Melbourne, the Festival’s most loved and laughed at comedians will pack their bags and hit the road for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, home-delivering hot and tasty comedic treats right around Australia and in particular a 3-day pit-stop at Newcastle’s Civic Theatre from June 7 to 9.
Forget I-Spy, Spotto and stale servo snacks; this road trip is jam-packed with a crew of fantastically funny comedians, specially selected to bring the fun of the Festival to towns and cities around the nation. The Roadshow will visit 88 Australian towns, presenting 99 performances of sketch, stand-up, satire, silliness and song across 11 weeks.
Storming the stage in Newcastle will be Dave Callan (MC), Cal Wilson, Sean Choolburra and more.
For 20 years the Melbourne International Comedy Festival has been touring far and wide, bringing giggles, guffaws and good times to Australia and further afield. Whether you’re in Katherine, Quirindi, Kyneton or Cairns, you can still experience Australia’s largest and best-loved comedy festival in your own backyard.
The journey doesn’t end there either, with the Roadshow taking its talent abroad with International tour dates across Hong Kong, Singapore, India and Malaysia to follow.
The Roadshow really has something for everyone! Grab a mate, grab a date… grab a ticket to the Roadshow! Visit www.civictheatrenewcastle.com.au for more information and tickets.
