“She is likeably loud and instantly engaging on stage…(her) ability to inhabit her characters is amazing” – Herald-Sun
“One of the most brilliant and refreshing emerging talents I’ve seen to date” – Anthony Menchetti, ‘Gay Conversion School Drop Out’, NBC’s – ‘Last Comic Standing’, inaugural Raw Comedy winner 1996
“Funny, vibrant and with a great connection to the audience. Am I predicting big things? You bet I am.” – Janet McLeod, Local Laughs St Kilda, Rove Live (Channel 10), The Club (Channel 7)
The plaudits have flown thick and fast for one of Melbourne’s fastest rising comic talents – Bobby Macumber. Picking up the mic in humour for the first time in November 2010, Bobby’s list of achievements in such a short time are nothing short of stunning.
A Raw Comedy state grand finalist, ensemble cast member of the sell-out season of the 2011 LOL Big Gay Comedy Night at Midsumma Festival, an astonishing sell-out season for her debut solo show Bobby Macumber,
This Is Your Life at the 2011 Melbourne Fringe Festival, an invitation to perform at Feast Festival in Adelaide, and a 5-star review for her debut solo show at the 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, are some of the highlights. Along the way Bobby has shared the stage with a who’s who of local and international talent – names such as Hanna Gadsby, Lawrence Mooney, Jeff Green (UK), Dave Thornton, Hung Le, Gab Rossi, Adam Richard, Tommy Little and many more have given props to her natural, gut achingly funny, story-telling style.
Meanwhile, Greg Fleet has raved about her amazing stage presence. So how about it: can we get a “hell yeah” for Bobby?
