Stand-Up Sit-Down: Comics in Conversation

Dom Romeo’s interview show returns to the
Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2013

Dom interviews Andrew Denton at MICF 2012

What goes on tour stays on tour…until it’s revealed in Stand-­Up Sit-­Down!

Your favourite comedians talk about their work and life, lifting the lid on how and why they do what they do.

“Wow, that’s a good question – nobody’s ever asked me that,” you’ll often hear a comic say during the show – before you get to hear them say something they’ve never told anyone.

This ‘Inside the Actors Studio’ of Comedy is presented by comedy nerd extraordinaire Dom Romeo and his guests include some of the funniest comics at the Festival.

Dom has contributed to Australian comedy just about forever, his work appearing in the likes of GQ, Men’s Style, FilmInk and broadcast on ABC, FBi and 2GB.

His blog is archived by the National Library and his dedicated comedy podcast Radio Ha Ha predated all the others you listen to now.

Look forward to the comedy scene more up close and personal than you’ve ever seen it before.
