2020 HAS BEEN WEIRD ENOUGH WITHOUT A VARIETY SHOW HOSTED BY A BROKEN LAPTOP
Imagine if all of the internet was compressed down to less than an hour, crammed into a live stream, and blasted into your eyes by a time-travelling talking laptop; that's what's on offer from cult variety show Mac The Comedy Computer, appearing as part of this years' online Melbourne Fringe program. The show promises to leave audiences trapped between
laughing at crying at a lineup programmed by a computer who clearly doesn’t understand human emotion or the rules of comedy.
With a different lineup of comedians, cabaret artists and classifiable oddities providing their most surreal material each week, this show has become a word of mouth hit at Perth's Fringe World festival and this is its first time “in” Melbourne.
Mac The Comedy Computer's Manic Melbourne Meltdown appears as part of online performance platform Normal Place's Perthonalities season of six Western Australian shows as part of Melbourne Fringe. Tickets to the shows, running at 9pm on Saturday November 14, 21 and 28 are available now from melbournefringe.com.au .
