George Zacharopoulos is hitting the Melbourne Comedy Festival circuit for one last week with his hilarious show ‘Ugly Babies Make Me Laugh’.

If you have ever looked at a baby and thought ‘Christ … What an unfortunate looking baby’ (of course you have) then this show is for you. The Greek-born comedian, who currently lives in the UK, has written all the thoughts we often keep to ourselves and travelled some 12,000 kilometres to share them with his Australian audience.

Enjoy an hour of Zacharopoulos talking about what it was like to be raised in Greece by a Greek family, and his subsequent experiences of moving abroad to study and then live – think traditions, and hilarious cultural clashes.

Given the show’s popularity, an additional performance has been added at the Sub Club in Melbourne on Saturday 29 April.

Zacharopoulos has been working as a comedian for eight years, during which he has supported fellow Greek comedians of the diaspora including Katerina Vrana, Angelo Tsarouchas and George Kapiniaris.

He has appeared on the BBC and last year took part in the Greek comedy fundraiser It’s All Greek To Me at the Athenaeum Theatre.

Catch ‘Ugly Babies Make Me Laugh’ at the Melbourne Comedy Festival from 19-22 April at the Sub Club, 33 Elizabeth St, Melbourne, VIC. To purchase tickets, visit
Details on where to purchase tickets for his recently added show are yet to be released.
