Presented by Melbourne International Comedy Festival


4-6pm (workshop) | 7pm (performance)

Happy Yess, 12 Smith Street, Darwin

2016 Deadly Funny finalists with host Kevin Kropinyeri and guests Shiralee Hood and Andy Saunders.

Cheeky and loud, black and proud, Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s national comedy competition returns in 2017 to unearth the freshest, fiercest and funniest Indigenous talent from around the country. There's even a trip to Melbourne and $2000 up for grabs!

Heading into its 11th year, this one-of-a-kind comedy competition is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 18+. Participants need to come up with 5 minutes or less 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.
