I'm actually a bit underwealmed by the international acts this year. I mean, how many times can Arj Barker do this festival?
As mentioned above, Tim Vine will be worth seeing, Paul Foote can be funny and Ian Edwards is ok.
But yeah, reckon I'll be seeing more Aussies this year.
Or Stephen K Amos or Ross Noble or Rich Hall or Danny Bhoy or Fiona O Loughlin...
Answer, every year until somebody stops booking them - ie never
Going to see Wil Anderson (for the first time live) this year. No idea why I'd never got around to it until now, but there it is. Probably try and see Mooney too, why not.
I did get a laugh out of how the MICF site has 'Jimoein' listed as an international. He opened one of the first comedy specific rooms in Melbourne, lived here full time since about 1990. At what point are you naturalised?
