Stand and Deliver is a production featuring a selection of performers from the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival – and these performances are being filmed for ABCme which will be filled for TV and be aired in a few weeks!

With over 500 shows to choose from it can be a bit hard to decide what to see at this year’s festival; luckily the kids can get a taste of the best.  Acts may include a selection of about half a dozen different comedians, the performers we saw included:

  • The Mighty Littles The Junior Mighty Little Puppet Show, a fun improv show with puppets.
  • Dave Hughes. Popular Melbourne Radio Host from the Hughesy & Kate show was a big hit with the kids. He has three kids himself so he knows how much kids love poo jokes and stories about the family’s Pet Dog, Barkley.
  • Trygve Wakenshaw is a rather unusual Physical Comedian. He was extremely popular with the kids… doesn’t even have to say a word but still has the kids in hysterics. He has a few shows on over the weekend.

Hosted by Susie Youssef.  With only three more shows left catch them quickly before the Festival ends this Saturday and Sunday at the Spiegeltent.

Suitable for kids 8-12 years. This show will be filmed for ABCme.
