Inanimately – by Nicolette Minster at MICF 2015

MICF 2015 has just 4 days left! This gives you only a few more chances to catch wonderful performers like Nicolette Minster in shows such as “Inanimately.” I can’t wait to see this show as I’ve seen Nicolette in her amazing duo act, Girls Uninterrupted many times!

Here’s a bit more about what she’s up to now!


As seen on ABC2, 7mate’s KINNE and heard on Nova 100.

Objectum sexuals have sex with inanimate objects. They flirt with bridges and get hitched to landmarks. Nicolette has been seeing her security blanket for almost 30 years. Could this be the gateway to becoming Mrs Bolte Bridge?

This is a show about when having “safe sex” means avoiding splinters.

‘Minster has got the works.’ Australian Stage

Directed by Heath McIvor

Suitable for audiences 16+

Darkness and Light at the Melbourne Fringe 2013

Melbourne, Victoria: Returning to the Melbourne Fringe Festival this year, Darkness and Light is a show for those who like their comedy a little on the real side.  Darkness and Light will run at The Tuxedo Cat from September 18 to 24 at 7pm each night, 6pm on Sundays.

Darkness and Light brings together a fusion of funny people using a combination of stand-up, and stunning storytelling, to uncover the comedy gold that lurks beneath some of their darkest days. This is not about making light of a serious issue, it’s to demonstrate how darkness and light can co-exist in our lives and we can persevere.

Anyone who’s ever experienced bullying, mental illness, racism, coming out, grief, chronic illness, substance misuse, a broken heart, or just a really bad day will find they’re not the only ones, as some of the Fringe Festival’s top comics (and some very special international guests) share their very personal postcards from the edge.

Often confronting, but always funny, the Darkness and Light line-up changes every night, and features a stellar selection of comics, including:

Dave Thornton, Luke McGregor, Girls Uninterrupted, Ben Lomas, Laura Davis and Cat Commandr, and also our regular D & L story-joke masters Richard McKenzie, Bart Freebairn, Lori Bell, Nath Valvo, Simon Taylor, Morven Smith, Geraldine Hickey, Bryan Lynagh, Cy Fahey, Charles Barrington, and more!

We invite you step into the dark side, and see the light!

“Four stars!” The Herald Sun

“An incredible show and a great concept; each night different comedians get up and tell their true stories of when things maybe weren’t going so great for them. It results in some powerful storytelling and deeply touching moments, but also a chance to laugh at life’s twists and turns. Seeing this show was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend checking it out. Four stars.” The Funny Tonne

“Darkness and Light was an important and deeply satisfying evening. I came away feeling uplifted. I strongly suggest people go and support this show. It needs to be performed again and again: opening people’s minds, opening people’s hearts.” Glass Wings

Girls Night at MICF


Melbourne, Victoria: Grab your girlfriends and get ready to giggle – Girls Night is back for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013! Bringing together some of the best Australian and International female comics, this is a night to celebrate all things female and funny.

This is the fourth consecutive year for the popular Girls Night show, which has built a loyal following in its Comedy Festival touring. “Female comedians have a wonderful energy and camaraderie off the stage; I wanted to bring that experience out for audiences to see. We all get to join in the fun!” said producer Cath Styles.

The Girls Night in Melbourne is looking forward to a stellar line-up with DeAnne Smith, Cath Styles, Abigoliah Schamaun, Lori Bell, Girls Uninterrupted, Geraldine Hickey, Anna Log, Linda Beatty, Sally Kimpton, Ethel Chop, Sophie Miller, Diana Nguyen, Juliet Meyers, Alice Fraser, Laura Davis, Karin Muiznieks, Laura Hughes, Yvonne Malik, Telia Neville, Lou Lou Pollard, and many more!

Girls Night has more female comics than any other show at the Festival and we’re proud to sing it for the sisters!  This year we’re doing something extra special and including 2 unique nights on the line-up – Same Love Night! Featuring DeAnne Smith, Lori Bell, Geraldine Hickey, Abigoliah Schamaun, and special guests Joel Creasey and Nath Valvo, these two nights are a thank you to the wonderful gay and lesbian following the show has, as well as a showcase of some of the finest comics the comedy festival has to offer.

From musical comedy, rising stars, award winners and international acts looking to find their audience in Melbourne, this show has something for everyone! The line-up changes every night so one could come to the show every day (we hope you do!) and experience a completely different show!
