Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Darebin Arts Speakeasy presents

DEADLY FUNNY 2019

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. National workshops/heats kick off in September 2018 hosted by some of the country’s best Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander comedians.

A trip to Melbourne and $2,000 is up for grabs! Deadly Funny is heading into its 13th year and is a significant and vibrant part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.  This one-of-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 the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the National Grand Final in April 2019.
