Mel Buttle

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Buttle

Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival and Token Events

A brand new hour of stand up from one of Australia’s funniest comedians.

It’s 2017 people and there’s plenty of stuff for Mel to be fired up about.  She’s also been working on her bird impressions and she’s making great progress. How many comedy shows have bird impressions guys? Not many. Just saying.

Mel returns to the Brisbane Comedy Festival after a big year, hosting the second series of the Lifestyle Food channel’s smash hit show Great Australian Bake Off with fellow comedian Claire Hooper and Australian culinary icons Maggie Beer and Matt Moran.

Don’t miss the chance to check in and see what’s been happening with Australia’s favourite Buttle.*
*Not Barry Buttle.



Known for
Great Australian Bake Off, This Week Live.


The right mix of sarcastic self-deprecation and genuine vulnerability...expect to see Mel Buttle mature into one of the best Australian comics. ★★★★1/2
