I’m very excited for MICF – Melbourne International Comedy Festival starting in just 10 days and to see one of my favourite shows again!!! With a difference. Last year I loved “A Sunburnt History: The First Fleet” and it stood out as one of my Top 5 shows of the fest and it’s back with a difference. This year it’s called “Citizenship and I cannot wait to see what’s in store!
50,000 years ago the first immigrants arrived on Australian shores, they also happened to be the first Australians. Following a solid 49,774 year hiatus, there’s been a steady influx of migrants from all around the world. Looking at Queensland’s slavery, the Mabo Decision, and the biggest gaffe of all, The White Australia policy, we find out what it really means to be an Australian.
As with Previous incarnations, audiences can expect a fast-paced, entertaining, funny and informative tale that will analyse how all of our differences actually bring us closer together. Be constantly surprised and intrigued by Australia’s Complicated and unique approach to immigration.
A Sunburnt History is getting back to doing what it does best, busting myths and shaking Aussie history ‘til the truth falls out.
“If only all history lessons were as flat-out entertaining.”
