Hello All
The Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) is bursting with talented comedians, musicians, magicians and entertainers!
We have had a few more shows added from the MICF. Please check these out.
Some of these shows are on the same night at different times - get as many tickets as you can, $5 per transaction regardless of the number of tickets allocated per member. These are outstanding offers. If you have the opportunity to get out of the house, if you feel like having a laugh - you really should get your tickets whilst the opportunity is there. Don't think too hard, just book. Remember, the MICF will be over soon and then you have to wait another year!

Please remember - if you cannot go to see the show, tell someone who can! (http://onthehouse.forwardtomyfriend.com/j-ikjhfej-21068F78-jikhutt-l-kh)

They say 'the hat makes the man', but it's what is under the hat that makes a man funny... and that's Paddy.
This solo cabaret show features comedy, magic, shadow-puppetry, improv and a ridiculous number of hats.
One hour of organised mayhem.

Simon Palomares returns to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in a brand new show exploring life, travel and relationships after touring around the world and the high seas for the last few years.
A master story teller, he brings an insight and maturity to his comedy as few performers do.
Still Crazy looks at the insanity of love and life. The passion and the perils. The peaks and the pitfalls. All with insight, warmth, side-splitting laughter and the Spanish pizazz.
On the 17th of March Simon has been asked to host the Oz Australia Gala in Perth in front of an audience of 6000 and televised on SBS TV.
Catch him before he sets off again touring Spain and Argentina later in the year.
Make the most of the venue by having a meal before or after the show.
“Clever and genuinely funny” – The AGE
“From the moment he hit the stage, Simon Palomares had the audience eating out of his hand, a talented storyteller, Palomares is both appealing and entertaining, providing a really enjoyable comedy experience.” – Adelaide Advertiser.
Go to the opening night! on: 10/4 (http://onthehouse.cmail2.com/t/j-l-jikhutt-ikjhfej-id/)

White Trash is a stand-up show about racism and penguins, but mostly racism and why a middle class, white male comedian is the worst possible person to be talking about it.

How I Learned to Drive (http://onthehouse.cmail2.com/t/j-l-jikhutt-ikjhfej-kt/)

http://www.tooraktimes.com.au/images/imported/2013/04/165.jpg (http://onthehouse.cmail2.com/t/j-l-jikhutt-ikjhfej-ki/)

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Co-winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. Co-winner of the Lucille Lortel Award for outstanding play.

A wildly funny, surprising and devastating tale of survival as seen through the lens of a troubling relationship between a young girl and an older man. HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE is the story of a woman who learns the rules of the road and life from behind the wheel.
Absolutely a must see.
Tickets available on 2/5 for the preview show and now also for the opening night!. (http://onthehouse.cmail2.com/t/j-l-jikhutt-ikjhfej-kd/)
