Lucky Stiff

April 10 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


After a hit season of heartwarming hilarity in 2023, Bold Offer Productions in partnership with Be You Productions is proud to present the glorious return of Lucky Stiff for the 2024 Melbourne International Comedy Festival!

Lucky Stiff is a zany musical comedy about a man, a corpse, some dogs, some diamonds, and a whole lot of money. Harry Witherspoon, a down-on-his-luck shoe salesman, inherits a fortune from his dead uncle (who unbeknownst to Harry has been mysteriously murdered), but there’s a catch… to stop the money literally going to the dogs, he has to drag the old man’s embalmed body to Monte Carlo for one last hurrah!

Through all the mayhem and misadventure, Harry discovers love, bravery, and that sometimes it takes a deceased relative to show you what life is all about.

Audiences can expect big laughs from this joyous farce, a tale that’s hysterical, gripping and endearing in equal measure, and music that is simply to die for.

The formidable cast from 2023 have returned and are dead serious about bringing this delightful comedy back to life. All bets are off, all accents are acquired, and one thing is for certain: something funny’s going on!
