ABC screens the Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala in support of Oxfam this Sunday, hosted by Tom Gleeson.
Appearing are Nazeem Hussain, Tommy Little, Paul Foot, DeAnne Smith, Becky Lucas and Rhys Nicholson.
“I can’t wait to show ABC viewers the funniest comedians from Australia and the world. It has been a dream of mine to host the Gala ever since I was asked to last week,” says Gleeson.
Host Tom Gleeson is one of the sharpest minds in Australian comedy. His stand-up shows are relentlessly hilarious and masterful. Despite his ruthless grillings, he’s still got a lot of love to give!
This one-off spectacular is not just a great night out, it’s a chance to do some good. After all, laughter is the best medicine.
Oxfam’s ongoing partnership with the Festival has made a difference to the lives of thousands of people, tackling poverty head-on by providing clean water, decent toilets and practical, life-changing solutions for people in need.
