Steph Tisdell will become the first Indigenous comedian to host Melbourne International Comedy Festival's The Gala event next month. 

The Pinder Prize winner has today been confirmed to take on the gig, which supports not-for-profit organisation Oxfam, taking place at Palais Theatre in Melbourne on 18 March.

“I’m not sure the Comedy Festival are making the right decision having this big face! But in all seriousness, I think Aboriginal representation in roles like this is hugely important and I’m so chuffed they’d have faith in me to fulfil such an important job," Tisdell said. 


The Gala is already sold out but ABCTV will broadcast the show nationally. An air date is yet to be confirmed.

A string of huge international comics and Aussie favourites will take part in the 2020 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, including Adam Hills, Anne Edmonds, Daniel Sloss, Dulcé Sloan, Becky Lucas and The Lucas Brothers.
