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.   http://www.trygvewakenshaw.net/

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.
