Event Details

Melbourne International Comedy Festival presents

Cheeky and loud, black and proud, Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s national comedy competition unearths the freshest and funniest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent from across the country. Local heats of Deadly Funny land in November 2017 and will also feature a star-studded comedy line-up of Australia’s best Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander comedians.
$2000 is up for grabs! Deadly Funny is heading into its 12th year and is a significant and vibrant part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. This oneof- a-kind comedy event is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 18 and over.

To participate, all you have to do is have up to 5 minutes of funny material. It’s basically storytelling with a punchline!
Entrants will take part in a private workshop with a professional comedian, followed by a public live performance. Special guest judges will decide who travels to Melbourne for the National Grand Final.
