Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala 2013

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The air fills with the sound of thousands of knitting needles and arthritic bones clacking as scarves are woven in various footy club stripes. Down the street you can hear the gentle scraping of the urban tumbleweed, or ‘discarded umbrella’ dancing in the breeze. And through it all, there’s constant laughter coming out of every bar, club and theatre across the city.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is upon us, and the first sign of it kicking off is The Gala.

It’s a showcase of some of the festival’s hottest talent, donating their acts for free in the name of charity. Profits go to Oxfam, disadvantaged communities get much needed help, comedians get high profile promotion, and we get to laugh. It’s one big, feel-good night.
