Nina Conti: In Your Face

This MICF welcomes Conti and co. during their return performance of last year's festival hit

You may be familiar with Nina Conti, triple threat actress, comedian and ventriloquist, and her cheeky (read jaded and foul-mouthed) monkey from their appearances on QI and Spicks and Specks – or you may know her as a hapless date for Bernard Black (Dylan Moran's boozy grump) on Black Books.

Find out why Conti has gathered a swag of comedy awards over the years (including a Barry during the 2008 Melbourne International Comedy Festival) when she reprises her 2015 show and takes ventriloquism from slightly creepy, vaudevillian antiquity to new levels of contemporary LOLs. If this is show is true to Conti's usual form, you can expect new characters every night, drawing inspiration from the crowd on the fly. Don't sit in the front rows if you're not a fan of audience participation.
