Nova 100 is celebrating its eighth year as partner for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
This year Nova 100 will provide listeners with experiences and highlights of the comedy festival and for the first time add a trade element by using comedy to mentor and entertain media agencies.
Louise Higgins, Nova Entertainment COO, said, “Nova and Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s marquee partnership is one of our most valued and rewarding relationships. We are delighted to work with one of Australia’s premier events, which not only reflects the Nova brand and values but also our commitment to constantly create engaging content that is loved and shared by audiences wherever they are.”
Nova 100’s Meshel & Tommy will showcase the best of the festival with 30 comedians in 3 weeks. The duo will chat to some of the best local and international comedians each morning during their breakfast show, providing listeners with a taste of what to expect during this year’s festival.
Nova’s ROFL Room will return for a third year. Showcasing an array of established and up and coming comedians, Nova’s ROFL Rooms will be held over three consecutive Saturday nights at Trades Hall from 28 March. Tickets can only be won by listening to Nova 100.
Friday Funnies will see Nova 100 put on “pop up” standup shows in key agencies throughout April with staff enjoying cocktails while comedians including Nath Valvo and Adam Rozenbachs do a live standup set.
