THE Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow is hitting the road to home deliver the freshest and funniest comedy at Koorliny Arts Centre next month.

A cast of intrepid travelling comedians will make a pit stop at the centre as part of their Australia-wide roadshow, bringing laughs a-plenty and a packed show to comedy lovers.

With a mix of local heroes and international stars, the roadshow will cover all comedy bases in this raucous night out.

MC Bob Franklin will facilitate a “chuckalicious” line-up, which includes Carl Donnelly (UK), Gillian Cosgriff, Guy Montgomery (New Zealand) and Ivan Aristeguita.

Award-winning comedian, improviser and screenwriter Guy Montgomery is tragically best known as co-host of the international smash podcast The Worst Idea of All Time.

His surreal style of bemoaning the everyday has fast won him praise and awards in his native New Zealand and as far west of New Zealand as Australia.

Aristeguita became a full time comedian after having a successful career as a Brew Master and Food Technologist in his home country of Venezuela.

He left the brewery but beer is still part of his job.

Edinburgh Fringe favourite Donnelly wins over crowds with his self-deprecating stand-up, musical comedian Gillian is secretly a ‘cabaret ninja’, and Bob is known around the comedy circuit for being a pretty funny bloke.

From Hong Kong to Hobart and New Delhi to Newcastle, with more than 80 destinations in between, the roadshow packages up and home-delivers laughs to deserving comedy fans.
