Zoe Coombs Marr to support Hannah Gadsby at Melbourne Comedy Festival

Hannah Gadsby’s sold-out run of her new live show Douglas opened at Melbourne Comedy Festival this week, but she wasn’t the only one to hit the stage.  

Award – winning actor and comedian Zoe Coombs Marr opened Gadsby’s Melbourne premiere on Thursday 28 March and will support all shows throughout her Melbourne Comedy Festival run 27 March – 7 April.

Speaking at the launch of this year’s Festival on Tuesday, Gadsby applauded Marr as one of the female comedians paving the way to a revolution in comedy.

Zoe’s work in theatre and standup and her razor- sharp critique of macho culture has garnered awards and recognition from Melbourne to Edinburgh. A host for SBS at the 2019 Mardi Gras, Zoë recently won Best Writing/Adaptation at the 2019 Green Room Awards for Ich Nibber Dibber and Bossy Bottom earned her a nomination for Best Comedy Performer at the 2018 Helpmann Awards.
