Let’s face it, 2020 was awful. For many Melburnians, the last-minute cancellation of Melbourne International Comedy Festival was the first sign of just how bad things would get.
It’s a new year now. Yay! And with that dumpster fire behind us, MICF rises like a phoenix once more. You heard right, live comedy is back in town—and this time around it’s more homegrown than ever!
The coming of a new festival season will always warm my little heart as I see collaborators both old and new with their very own festival shows.
Here is another Revolutionary Recommendation for 2021:
Scandal! A Reflection on Essendon’s Doping Saga: The Musical?
25 Mar – 4 Apr
In 2013 Essendon Football Club was rocked by one of the biggest doping scandals in AFL history.
Scandal! A Reflection on Essendon’s Doping Saga: The Musical? is a (slightly) biased look at what it means to be a diehard fan when your heroes fall from grace. Featuring all original music and a live band.
Nominated for Best Cabaret Writing at the 2019 Annual Greenroom Awards and also received the Moosehead Award in 2020, Kit is a creative force worthy of your attention.
Kit appeared in the mysteriously-titled #QuestInnPodcast episode Balai the White as Mop LeBlanc in 2019.
Scandal! A Reflection on Essendon’s Doping Saga: The Musical? is playing now.
