Clemenger BBDO Melbourne has created a TVC, called ‘Inside the Joke’, to launch the 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and celebrate the event’s 30th anniversary.

Directed by Revolver’s Steve Rogers, the spot plays off the old ‘A bishop, a Scotsman and a judge walk into a bar…’ premise and features a few of these worn characters questioning the path of the joke as it plays out.

The cast includes accomplished TV, film and theatre actors Marshall Napier as the judge, Chris Haywood as the priest, Benedict Hardie as the Scotsman and Lynne Porteous as the barwoman.

This year’s festival runs from 23 March to 17 April, and will feature around 7,000 ticketed and free performances from over 450 local and international guests.
