In its 24th year, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow aims to roll out the best stand up, sketch, and satire across venues in all corners of the nation.
Glen Street Theatre's line-up has been announced and is guaranteed to break out the laughs.
Kirsty Webeck (MC)
Kirsty wins hearts everywhere she goes with her upbeat and relatable brand of comedy that is often described as playful, light-hearted and fun. A gifted storyteller, she has a natural ability for turning the mundane into the hilarious and has quickly become one of the most popular Australian comedians in the industry.
You may recognise her as a regular guest on ABC Radio, from her appearances on TV shows such as Tonightly with Tom Ballard, How To Stay Married, and Metrosexual, or as the host of the incredibly successful lockdown hit Kirsty Webeck's Zoom Comedy Hour.
Self-identifying bogan genius Brett Blake is a whip-smart, high-spirited stand up who has performed widely across Australia and the UK.
A regular sell-out at the Melbourne International Comedy and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, Brett also starred on Common Sense for Network 10, has a hand in Melbourne’s Comedy at Coopers Inn, is a regular visitor to The Little Dum Dum Club, shared the reins on Worst First Dates podcast with Kelly Fastuca and currently co-hosts the bonkers double-dare fiesta that is Flat Stick with Nick Capper. His unpretentious look belies vulnerability and willingness to explore complex issues on stage. His material runs the gamut of living with dyslexia to truck licenses and he is the only comic who physically built the venue he performed in at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
He has appeared on Have You Been Paying Attention, Hughesy We Have a Problem and a regular on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow. In 2021, he reached the pinnacle of Aussie comedy, when his show Piñata was nominated for Most Outstanding Show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
In 2022 Patrick was hand-picked by the Melbourne Comedy Festival to appear in The Comedy Zone, a showcase of the best up-and-coming talent from around the country.
Steph Broadbridge is a regular host and headliner at all the Sydney comedy clubs having performed alongside Ronny Chieng, Jimeoin, Matt Okine and Dave Hughes. She has performed at Splendour in the Grass as well as Sydney and Melbourne Comedy Festivals and the Sydney Fringe Festival.
Steph was a Raw National Finalist in 2019 and her first solo show was nominated and short listed for ‘Best Comedy’ at Sydney Fringe Festival and nominated for 'Best Newcomer' at Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
