Comedy Festival Show Producer

Melbourne, Victoria

The Lords of Luxury are performing in their 4th consecutive Melbourne International Comedy Festival and will be looking for a producer for their late night variety show "After Dinner Mint".

The Lords of Luxury are an endearingly haphazard, tuxedo-clad sketch comedy extravaganza made up of Paul Verhoeven (Triple J and ABC 3), Dan Debuf (Fox FM), Matt Saraceni (Creator of "Written it Down" and Nova 100) and Luke Ryan (The Big HOO-HAA! and 2009 MICF sell-out ‘Luke’s Got Cancer’).

We're looking for someone with experience in producing live shows (preferably with a comedy edge) or at least possess the organisational nouse to maintain a schedule of guests for four weeks of a show in the comedy festival. We will point you in the right direction to contact the biggest names of the Comedy Festival, then it is up to you to talk to them about the show and lock them in for the many dates we will perform the show.

The ideal candidate is someone we can trust to not shoot off one email and shrug their shoulders saying "oh well they never replied", but someone who will politely chase the big names until it's done.

Your roles will include:

  • Maintaining the calendar of guests appearing in the show.
  • Finding and booking ideal comedy acts for the show, with our direction.
  • Meeting guests and making them feel welcome on performance nights.
  • Liasing with Melbourne comedy festival staff and crew to ensure the smooth running of performances.
  • Assisting with PR and Publicity tasks for the show.
  • Any other weird task that ensures a smooth show (ideally: know where the nearest supply of Red Bull cans are)

In exchange you will get:

  • A Comedy Festival Artist Pass (free shows and Festival Club entry during Comedy Festival)
  • 10% of show profits (we are in a 121 seater for 12 shows - so this could be substantial pay, but that's up to you!)
  • A glowing recommendation if you do a great job! (All 3 of our previous producers now work professionally in the arts/media/comedy world - so we consider ourselves a proud stepping stone into the industry).
