There’s nothing quite like enjoying a late night comedy show on a weeknight and strolling the streets of Melbourne with fellow comedy goers. 3 Course Comedy enticed me by their title first and foremost, mostly because I’m a foodie and I love a good degustation. Plus, why not support up and coming comedians!
Each night the line-up changes #SharingTheLove and on Tuesday hitting the stage were Peter Jones, Luka Muller and Michael Shafar. What I enjoyed about the overall setup at Belleville was how intimate a setting it was. It almost didn’t feel like a show but more so a dinner party where friends just shared stories. Given, some of the stories shared were a little more graphic than others (but totally worth it), it was a really nice and supportive environment. Funnily enough, I was one of seven audience members and while that may freak some people out, I loved it because you were able to engage with each comedian and have a bit of a chat.
Jones, Muller and Shafar each come from different backgrounds and as such, their life experiences are varied. I feel like I took away something from each of them though, and that says a lot about how giving they are of their experiences and sharing personal memories. We should all make more of an effort to support emerging talent, especially comedians; it’s not easy what they do but I respect the confidence and gusto they showed.
3 Course Comedy will be running until Saturday April 22nd so there’s still time to grab some tickets and have a few LOLs. For tickets head here.
The reviewer attended the show on Tuesday April 11th.
