    Comedy at the 'G

    The MCC is delighted to announce its first pre-match Comedy @ the ‘G function for 2014.

    Laugh along with some of Australia’s top comics, whilst you enjoy a two-hour, pre-game, snack food and beverage package with friends prior to the Carlton-Hawthorn game. A reserved seat on Level 2 to watch the match is also included.

    The evening’s entertaining line-up includes Ronny Chieng, Tegan Higginbotham and musical duo Elbow Skin.

    Ronny Chieng - winner of the 2014 Directors Choice Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Ronny is one of the fastest rising comedy stars in Australia. His TV credits include ABC's Tractor Monkeys, It's A Date, and Dirty Laundry Live to name a few. 

     

    Tegan Higginbotham - as seen on Thank God You're Here and Spicks & Specks, Tegan is a multi-talented comedian, actress, writer and occasional sports reporter. A sports fanatic, her first solo show - Million Dollar Tegan - was a personal investigation into the traditional gentleman's sport of boxing, where she got hit in the head A LOT.

     

    Elbowskin - recently described by The Age as "great, fall-off-your-seat-laughing fun". With songs glorifying the wonders of beer, about how great Mums are and barbs aimed at pretentious cafe culture, you will soon be raving to everyone about your new favourite comedy act.
