Commencing in the early evening and going onwards deep into the night, Late Late Night features a range of Mudfest works held in North Court and the Ida Bar.

The following works are being presented as a part of Late Late Night:

Screening of VCA Archival Films in North Court
Lost Shorts is a series of screenings drawing from recently digitised archive of VCA graduate films. Presenting a retrospective of narrative, animated and documentary shorts selected from an archive of over 1800 films Lost Shorts aims to illuminate the interplay of historical and contemporary aesthetics and culture. Moving Image Creative producer Harry Goodlet and the New Student Precinct with its creative partner Next Wave are proud to present Lost Shorts as a part of Mudfest. All films are captioned.

Comedy Gala Night in the Ida Bar
An upbeat comedy night at the Ida Bar featuring sketch, stand-up and musical acts.

Interdisciplanary Extravaganza in the Ida Bar
Dark different and a little bit wild—the Interdisciplinary Arts program at Mudfest 2019 showcases some tantalising new projects from the more obscure side of the tracks. Come and get a taste at Late Late Night, with immersive performances form the teams behind Feast, M E D U S A and Magic Dykes XXL. Content warning: strong lighting effects, loud noises, mature themes.

Ultra in the Ida Bar
Mediating the space between the natural and contrived is Ultra, an eclectic improvised electronic soundscape.

All Mudfest venues are wheelchair accessible. Service and assistance animals are welcomed. To get in touch about accessibility for this event or for Mudfest in general, contact mudfest2019@gmail.com

The Mudfest team acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work, learn and celebrate. We pay our respect to their elders past and present, and future. This was and always will be Aboriginal land and sovereignty was never ceded.

Melbourne Uni’s funniest students bring the lols as they compete for the love and affection of their esteemed peers (that’s you), prizes and most importantly the chance to be certified funny AF!

If the prospect of watching fellow students realise their dreams (or bomb and crush them) isn’t enough to get you out on a school night, to top it off, special guest, the stone cold killer with exquisite mic technique himself, Aaron Chen will bring you the freshest and most splendid comedy you have ever seen.

Fresh off his critically acclaimed run with MICF 2019 show ‘piss off (just kidding) Aaron is legit funny, having collected a stack of awards, performed at the popular music festival Splendour in The Grass, supported International Comedian Ronny Chieng on his Live Australian Tour, had a featured role in ABC’s Ronny Chieng International Student (ABC), and Back In Very Small Business, as well as made appearances in Ch 7’s Orange Is The New Brown, Network 10’s Drunk History and on the MICF Comedy Festival Gala.
