For the seventh year Nova 100 has partnered with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival to feature guest spots with comedians, ticket giveaways and online support.

Nova General Manager Helen Davies commented: 

“Melbourne comes alive during the Comedy Festival and we are extremely excited to partner with this amazing event. Not only do we get to reflect the wide range of local and international comedians but we also get to create our own content to share with listeners and comedy fans.”
