With sensational tales packed with screen luminaries, side-splitting comedies, and stories of iconic Jewish trailblazers and innovators, the Jewish International Film Festival (October 24 – November 20) returns for another year of spectacular Jewish cinema from around the world.
Featuring 60 films from 23 countries, the Festival builds on almost 30 years of bringing the best of Jewish cinema to Australia, presenting 28 features, 29 documentaries, and full season screenings of three superb TV series to audiences in Melbourne. The Festival will also present films by the recipients of the JIFF Short Film Fund; I want to make a film about women and The Mirror.
Swing Set are Mario Hannah and Broni, one of Melbourne’s best and most experienced long-form improv comedy duos.
With many years of playing together under their belt, Mario and Broni bring a chemistry to the stage that draws audiences in as they create characters and worlds that will delight you. All done in the moment with you in the room. Being at a Swing Set show means being part of an exclusive and specific in-joke that you share in for one night only, once a fortnight.
Each show is different. Each show is funny.

Following a successful season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, “renowned improv legend” (The Plus Ones) Mark Gambino brings The Return of Grazie Fibonacci back to the stage one last time before banishing him to underworld.
Written and performed by this 18-year improv comedy veteran (The Big HOO-HAA! Melbourne, Impro Melbourne); The Return of Grazie Fibonacci is a solo sketch comedy interrogation of the awkwardness of modern life. Delving into topical themes – like toxic masculinity, historical patriarchal hangovers and social responsibility – Gambino unabashedly vivisects the paradoxes underlying Western culture’s perceptions of male conduct and lays bare a society unable or unwilling to accept responsibility for its failings.
Directed by Golden Gibbo Nominee, Elly Squire AKA Clara Cupcakes (The Worst, WHOM) – the show is a short and sharp comedy hit that is equal parts silly, sweet and philosophical. If you love Portlandia, Lady Dynamite, The Mighty Boosh or Key & Peele, you’ll love The Return of Grazie Fibonacci!
