SAM SIMMONS: SPAGHETTI FOR BREAKFAST (MICF 19/04/2015)

Everyone who knows me knows I worship this man. He is a comedy legend. I’ve followed his career since ‘The Sunshine Factory’. Sam is one of the few people in this world that makes me laugh till I cry or […]

MESHEL LAURIE: TALKS FUNNY (MICF 18/04/2015)

I’ve been following Meshel’s career for years, but so far had never had the chance to see her do her stuff. Granted she wasn’t doing stand-up, but no matter what she does, she kicks ass doing it. Such a fascinating […]

JUSTIN HAMILTON: SNACKS! (MICF 18/04/2015)

I’ve always had a soft spot for Justin. Two reasons. Many many years ago (12+ years I think) he would come and do my friends comedy room at UNSW Roundhouse. One gig there was only 5 of us there, and […]

TRIPOD: THIS GAMING LIFE (MICF 17/04/2015)

Tonight is your last chance this festival to see this amazing production. Go do it. Now. There was so much love in the room for our favourite trio, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone got pregnant. I’m going to do […]

I’M CALLING IT, PHIL WANG WILL BE THE NEXT MASSIVE THING IN COMEDY

Tonight ended up being a bit of a wang fest. I had caught some of his gear on the MICF specials. But tonight I got to see him in action, not once, but twice. First up was Fan Fiction Comedy, […]

GEN FRICKER: MONSTERPUSSY (MICF 17/04/2015)

Quite possibly Gen Fricker is my fellow Sydneysider, dirty-mouth, insulin resistant, injuring yourself lifting things, dead relationship breakup kindred spirit. Gen sucks you in with her storytelling, all sweet and innocent, next thing you know, it’s a Chinese finger-trap of […]

ADAM HILLS: CLOWN HEART (MICF 16/04/15)

I could wax lyrical on Hillsy’s comedy and style but I don’t need to. You all know that already. There is a reason he’s one of Australia’s biggest exports and regarded as the nice guy of comedy. What I will […]

SET LIST: (PORTLAND HOTEL, MICF 16/04/2015)

I love improv and I love Set List. I’ve been an avid fan of the tv series and the stuff online. So I was stoked that I finally got to see it live. And even more stoked (stokier?) when I […]

FANFICTION COMEDY (MICF 16/04/2015)

In the comedy circles I’ve travelled, let’s just say I’ve read some weird fiction in my time. Some real weird shit. Like I can never look Paul McDermott or Wil Anderson in the eye kind of weird shit and I […]

URZILA CARLSON: POISE CONTROL (MICF 15/04/2015)

Life is too short to drink bad coffee. Bad coffee can ruin your whole day. It can make you want to stab people. At least according to Urzila. We have slowly but surely become an angry society. ┬áReady to fly […]
