Nakedfella Productions Presents: Comic Book Funny
Stand-up comedy is lovely, but it’s got a Twilight Zone-style mirror
world which lives on paper and feeds on ink: the world of the
Australia’s vigorous community of independent comic book makers spend
their days as clerks, shopgirls, students, teachers, ad artists,
animators and telemarketers. By night the spotlight drops onto their
drawing boards and their pens and brushes come out to play.
Their work is angry, scatological, satiric, whimsical and just plain funny.
Comic Book Funny is a series of free events presenting the often
hilarious, occasionally touching and always purchasable works of
Australia’s funniest comics auteurs the print analogue to the rest of
the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Drop by the Bella Union Bar at Trades Hall each Saturday at 4pm and
you’ll meet a few more talented cartoonists. See their wares! Ask them
questions! Drink with them! Admire their ink-stained fingers!
