good fun

Not every single act was great but many were. A bit of fun to listen to if you don't feel like being serious for a while.

Ups and downs with some laugh out loud moments

not a bad listen on the morning commute, with some seriously funny moments and some really annoying stuff I skipped through (seriously, is anyone really into that crappy blokey Ocker humour now that we have alternatives on offer?)

Genuinely a good laugh with a few mediocre sets

Really had a good time listening to this, obviously not all sets were great but comedy is extremely subjective and the majority of this recording was absolutely outstanding. Always put me in a good mood.

Equality of outcome doesn't work for comedy

Obviously the producers we're striving for equality of outcome but this sadly resulted in some unfunny, nay, boring acts. one comedian even comments at one point that someone was sleeping through his set. please choose your acts based on talent not identity politics!

Meh..

Some of at acts are funny. Don't know if it was by chance but most of the comedians seem extremely left leaning and it's as if Melbourne comedy festival is trying to virtue signal...

not that funny

I enjoy discovering new comedians but I abandoned listening to this. My time is better spent listening to other comedy events.

Not at all my sense of humour didn't find it funny

Gave up - it was irritating rather than than funny and when he started singing that awful out of tune song I had to turn it off. Now just can't wait to remove it from my gadget.

Didn't care for it. didn't find any of them funny. Maybe it's one of those shows were you had to have been there.
