MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL GALA
8. 3 0PM, T DT
Perhaps the biggest and glitziest event on comedy’s calendar – the who’s who of stand- up on stage at the iconic Palais Theatre for one special night of laughs. This year, the brilliant Celia Pacquola ( above) hosts the gala, which includes a range of big names from Dave Hughes and Arj Barker to Nazeem Hussain, Anne Edmonds and Matt Okine, plus one of my personal favourites, Joel Creasey.
