A behind the scenes look at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Each year hundreds of thousands of people head out to see shows at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. They line up, have their tickets checked, find their seats and make small talk. Then, the lights go down, the music starts and a performer steps to bring the funny for 50 minutes. But where are the comedians as you are lining up? What are they doing to prepare and where do they go once they walk back through the curtain at the end of the show? This book is a series of images of comedians preparing to go on stage, or just as they have come off in the spaces that have been provided for them. Including comedians such as Adam Hills, Sammy J, Tom Ballard, Tripod, Cal Wilson, and many more.
