1. It’ll be “original and genuinely funny” – The Burn Magazine. That’s why we go to the Comedy Festival, right? Squeaky Clean Comedy has a strong track record of fantastic reviews, with respected and award-winning artists, so it’s pretty much a guaranteed pick.
2. It’s “a show that caters to all tastes” – Comedy Beast. 10 comedians from across Australia will present everything from slapstick to dark and edgy, to spoken word poetry and puppetry.
3. It’s “excellent bang for your buck” – The Pun. 10 comedians, two and a half hours, for only a bit more than a ticket to a single show would be.
4. You get a bonus feel-good factor. Just by being there, you’re helping to raise awareness of the life-saving water and sanitation work that World Vision does overseas.
5. It’s clean. So you can bring anyone without fear of the awkward cringe factor. Our comedians take up the challenge to rely solely on wit, timing and delivery to make audiences laugh. So while they might push the envelope sometimes, you know you’re in good hands.
1) You like fun? This show is fun. It’s so much fun, I can GUARANTEE that you’ll have copious amounts of fun!
2) I’ve been a PICF Next Gen Comedy finalist, RAW Comedy state finalist and three time Morley Primary School Egg and Spoon Race Champion. So if you’re impressed by awards I can GUARANTEE that this show will bedazzle you!
3) I can GUARANTEE that my show is the only show in the festival with a three minute song about phenylbarbitol.
4) I ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE that Matt Kilpa – Songs in the Key of Awesomesauce is on at 6pm, 12th – 23rd April at 1000 £ Bend and you can book tickets through the magic of the internet in mere picoseconds at https://www.trybooking.com/OIXX. No more weeks spent waiting for pesky telegrams!
5) I can COMPLETELY UNCONDITIONALLY GUARANTEE that I have not discussed any of the above guarantees with my lawyer. I GUARANTEE she’ll be pissed!
For more information see the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Website:
1. It is the only show in this year’s Comedy Festival featuring a sassy crime fighting cat with chronic kidney disease.
2. We are fairly sure we can boast, without exaggeration, the tallest performer in the festival. The talented and adorable Isaac Jones is 7 feet tall.
3. You can have a delicious mouthwatering Babu burger downstairs before the show.
4. It has tap dancing, juggling and 80s rock classics. Possibly all at once.
5. Kyle McDonald is a star on the rise – so see him while you can still afford to!

See the Melbourne International Comedy festival Website for details:
1. Musicians. Clowns. Wordmongers. More than just stand-up, all genres of comedy come here to shine.
2. A different line-up every night, with the best local and international performers. See snippets of their work and then go see the full shows of the ones you love.
3. It’s a cult. Everyone should join a cult once in their lives. This is the best cult. Better than all the cults. It’s tremendous. Believe me.
4. Point #3 was not inspired by the Trumpanzee. It’s just the truth. Not fake news. Just truth.
5. Joy. SO MUCH JOY.

1. Jacqueline was chosen as Pedestrian’s top 20 hottest picks for the festivals and didn’t even have to touch anyone’s genitals….she would have though if they were clean and asked politely.
2. Sink Full of Forks teaches you how to be your own knight in shining armour and compares breakups to being covered in a mountain of shit you have to slowly scrape off yourself. That’s fun, right?
3. Recommended for anyone suffering from bad skin who doesn’t need to be reminded of their condition by being asked “ What’s wrong with your face?” by strangers at a restaurant. Thanks C$%t!
4. Jacqueline is good at this, she likes doing this and would like to continue doing this for a long time and make enough money to be able to afford luxury items like toothpaste and potato gems.
5. Every show will be different because Jacqueline’s anxious little brain likes to jump around and distract her like a designer dog with a heart condition.*
