A RATIONAL FEAR
Winner of Best Comedy Podcast at the Australian Podcast Awards 2020 – 2023 is celebrating it's 1,000,704th download at Malthouse Outdoor Stage!
A Rational Fear brings together Australia's best comedians and experts to laugh at the world around them.
Join hosts Dan Ilic (Insiders) with guest fearmongers Kirsty Webeck (Comedy All-stars), Sami Shah (News Weakly), Charlie Pickering (The Weekly), Richard Fidler (Conversations) and DJ Andy McClelland (Finishing School) as they rip into the news, and drill down on climate change whilst drinking wine and eating cheese.
1,000,704 people can't be wrong—unless they're 1,000,704 Russian bots, which is highly probable. The first five people to buy tickets will get a free commuter car park in a marginal electorate.
Malthouse Outdoor Stage is a general admission venue with standing areas and seating available at shared tables. We recommend arriving early to find a space that’s right for you. The Malthouse Bar is open before and during the show, and food is available from The Malthouse Cafe.
We perform in all weather conditions, so long as it's safe for the performers and for you. Melbourne's weather can change all the time—we recommend bringing a raincoat, wearing waterproof shoes, and bringing a small umbrella just in case. In the event that the performance is cancelled, we will contact you to inform you the next steps. Please note the seating area is not covered.
