The ultimate comedy road trip returns to the Pilbeam Theatre in May.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow is hitting the highways to home-deliver the freshest and funniest from the 2022 Festival to neighbourhoods across the nation, with the Pilbeam Theatre scheduled for Friday 6 May.

For 24 years the Roadshow has presented an all killer, no filler line-up of Australian stars and talented newcomers to comedy fans far and wide.

Buckle up for a night of stand-up, sketch, satire, silliness and song in this rip-roaring road trip designed to satisfy all your post-pandemic comedy cravings!

The lineup includes:

Bev Killick is from the bold and brassy school of stand up, delivering a non-stop energetic set every time. As soon as she blast’s her way on stage, you know you’re in for a treat. Bev is likeable, bawdy and real.

Takashi Wakasuki – Stuck in a chasm between Japanese and Western culture, Takashi brings a fresh and unique perspective on Aussie life. His insights into everyday life in Japan are sure to have you both fascinated & roaring with laughter.

Blake Freeman is one of Australia’s brightest new comedians, making a name for himself with his own brand of energetic and disarmingly honest comedy. Through his youthful energy and charismatic delivery Blake weaves charming stories, making the intensely personal relatable.

Oliver Coleman is one of the most exciting performers to arrive on the Australian comedy scene in recent memory. Oliver came to most people’s attention for the first time with his debut solo-show Poolside, a chaotically funny hour of sketch comedy that was nominated for the Best Newcomer and Golden Gibbo awards at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Prue Blake is the comedian for anyone that knows the game is rigged and thinks ‘well, why not find it funny?’ With a style that is observational, intelligent and cheeky, Prue has been described as both “dashing” and a “disillusioned feminist” by The Age.
