Nova 100 going for lols
With the Melbourne International Comedy Festival having started this week, Nova 100 has partnered with the festival for the eighth consecutive year.
As is traditional, the MICF will have a strong presence in the Nova Breakfast Show. “Meshel & Tommy” will showcase many of the comedians – local and international – at the festival by featuring 30 comedians in 3 weeks.
Returning for the third time is the Nova ROFL Room, which will feature an array of established and up and coming comedians.
Nova’s ROFL Rooms will be held over three consecutive Saturday nights at Trades Hall from 28 March with listeners winning tickets by listening to Nova 100.
And in a new initiative, Nova 100 will launch ‘Stand Up School’, an event targeting young rising stars in media agencies, designed to address the issue of retention and motivation, through reward, recognition and entertainment.
Stand up School will feature Nova’s Tommy Little and Marty Sheargold, along with comedians Kate McLennan and Rachel Berger.
Nova Entertainment COO Louise Higgins said; “Nova and Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s marquee partnership is one of our most valued and rewarding relationships.
We are delighted to work with one of Australia’s premiere events, which not only reflects the Nova brand and values but also our commitment to constantly create engaging content that is loved and shared by audiences wherever they are.”
All the Nova content from the 2015 MICF will be featured at novafm.com.au.
