After enduring the world’s longest lockdown, Melbourne’s top comedians, led by Kate Langbroek, have told their favourite Christmas Cracker jokes in a joyful promotion for the city’s iconic Chapel Street Precinct.
The campaign aims to help Melbournians forget the crappy year they’ve endured and lift their spirits ahead of the silly season, all while promoting and supporting local businesses.
The campaign videos show much-loved local, Kate Langbroek, taking to the Chapel Street Precinct as ‘Mrs Claus’.
She then cuts a ‘Chap lap’ or two while sharing 25 original Christmas Cracker jokes with the iconic street’s visitors and business owners.
“Here is a lovely and timely reminder that Christmas joy is looming,” said Kate Langbroek.
“Thankfully, Mrs Claus has kept her sense of humour (despite the tough year we’ve had) and was delighted to share the gift of laughter and fellowship to support our local vibrant and precious strip.
“Retail and hospitality is apparently pretty abysmal in the North Pole, so she made the most of her time on Chapel Street and the traders and shoppers showered her in yuletide joy.
“Merry Christmas, friends. Let the festivities begin!”
If you’ve ever spent an Aussie Christmas with the family, then you know pulling crackers and sharing the cheesy Dad jokes inside is standard fare.
As such, several Melbourne comedians have lent a hand and their own cheesy Christmas jokes to the campaign, including Cal Wilson, Alex Ward, Concetta Caristo, Oliver Coleman, Vidya Rajan, Jordan Barr, Ben Kochan, Lloyd Langford, Lewis Garnham and Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes.
“Last summer was one of Chapel Street Precinct’s best in ten years, and we’re hoping this year is just as good as the last,” said Chapel Street Precinct Association (CSPA) president, Justin O’Donnell. “But this will only happen with the support of our community.”
“Christmas is the busiest shopping period of the year and it’s also the best time to buy from your favourite local businesses. Now more than ever, they need your support to climb out of COVID debt.”
The videos will be released across Chapel Street Precinct’s multiple digital platforms every day starting from December 1, right up until Christmas Day.
