Deadly Funny 2016

Cheeky and loud, black and proud, Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s national comedy competition, Deadly Funny, unearths the freshest, fiercest and funniest Indigenous talent from around the country. A trip to Melbourne and $2000 is up for grabs! Deadly Funny is always a significant and vibrant event.

Heading into its 10th year, this one-of-a-kind comedy competition is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 18 and over. All you have to do is have up to 5 minutes of funny material. It’s basically storytelling with a punchline!

Entrants will take part in a private workshop with a professional comedian, followed by a public live performance. Special guest judges will decide who goes on to perform in the national grand final during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

There will be a Deadly Funny 2016 workshop and performance in Sydney at Redfern Community Centre on 27 February 2016.

When: 4-6pm workshop followed by 7pm performance

Where: Redfern Community Centre, 29-53 Hugo Street, Redfern
