Well, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival has come to an end for another year; congratulations to Museum Comedy guest performer Hannah Gadsby on winning the Festival Director’s Award!

But just because we’re done in Melbourne for another festival, don’t think we’re resting on our laurels – in just a little over two weeks, we begin the Mythic Creatures Comedy Tour!

Creatures out of legend from air, land and sea have invaded the Australian National Maritime Museum – and now’s your chance to experience them in a whole new way! Join the Man in the Lab Coat and Museum Comedy founder Ben McKenzie (+1 Sword, Planet Nerd), 2009 Moosehead Award recipient and Good News Week writer Dave Bloustien (A Complete History of Western Philosophy) and Impro Australia and Beaconsfield: The Musical star Amanda Buckley (The Ultimate Board Game: Unscripted) for an after-hours trip through one of the twelve coolest museums in the world and be introduced to a mix of creatures and maritime treasures!

The Mythic Creatures Comedy Tour is presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and runs for three shows only from May 6 to 8. Numbers are limited, so be sure to book by calling the Maritime Museum on 02 9298 3655. Tickets are $20 for Museum members, and $25 for non-members.

You can find out more about this visiting exhibit at the Maritime Museum web site.
