Nova 100 and Melbourne International Comedy Festival Celebrate 14 years of laughs

Nova 100 celebrates the station’s 14-year partnership with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival by showcasing and providing listeners with access to the biggest, as well as up and coming, comedians from Wednesday 27 March to Sunday 21 April.

Chrissie, Sam & Browny will celebrate the official launch of the Festival with their annual live outside broadcast on Wednesday 27 March from 6am at the Melbourne Town Hall (Lower Town Hall) with guests and listeners entertained by some of the industry’s top comedians, including Judith Lucy, Urzila Carlson, Arj Barker, Anne Edmonds, Dilruk Jayasinha, Nazeem Hussain, Joel Creasey, Peter Helliar, Josh Earl, Ben Knight and Nath Valvo.

Chrissie says, “The Comedy Festival OB is an absolute hoot and quite possibly my fave show of the year. Everyone is welcome to come and hang out with us – but we’re not afraid to bribe people either – so we’re giving away $1000 cash every half hour!”

Chrissie, Sam & Browny will also chat to some of the biggest and most interesting comedians each weekday to showcase many of the comedy shows on offer during the Festival and Browny says, “It’s great to finally have some comic talent on the show.”


Nova 100 will also present the Hits & Giggles comedy gala event, featuring a dozen of Australia’s freshest, up and coming new comic talent on Saturday 13 April.

This year Friday Funnies, an exclusive, annual event for key agencies and clients, will be held at Ludlow Bar in Southbank. Hosted by Troy Ellis, the night will deliver a unique and comedic experience featuring some of the hottest acts from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Throughout the Festival, Nova will feature ticket giveaways to the hottest and most exciting shows on the circuit and will cover the Festival extensively on-line with reviews, highlights and videos and interviews with all content to be available on
