Arts Centre Melbourne and Midsumma Festival will bring you the cream of the queer comedy crop with a star-studded night of high-camp and butch hysterics in the Midsumma Comedy Extravaganza at the Fairfax Studio TONIGHT! (Wednesday 24 January 2018)
Your host for the evening will be Crown Prince of Comedy Joel Creasey (I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, It’s A Date, Sisters) – one of Australia’s most popular, acclaimed and charmingly controversial stand-up comedians. A self-described ‘fame whore’, Joel will introduce audiences to the A-list of the LGBTQIA+ world’s funniest stand-up performers.
Curated by Thomas Jaspers (AKA Rhonda Butchmore), this is one helluva line-up including Rhys Nicholson (GayCrashers, MICF Barry Award nominee 2016), Lori Bell (Adelaide Comedy Winner), Dolly Diamond (Midsumma favourite), Bobby Macumber (three time Melbourne International Comedy Festival sensation and described by Hannah Gadsby as ‘a natural’) and Kirsty Webeck (Mardi Gras/Women Of Letters/Melbourne International Arts Festival).
“Midsumma is the highlight of my gay calendar and I can’t wait to perform with all these fabulous people!” says Creasey.
