Darien Brown: his new show ‘Lumourous’ is painfully relatable

Tell us about your show? My show is essentially about life, various events that have happened in my life, and just what the future might hold down the road – things that we can all relate to.

What inspires you about MICF? Just the fact that there’s so much diversity and how people of different nationalities, disabilities, race, religion and gender can emerge together as one in a performing arts festival such as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. That’s what truly inspires me.

Who are your biggest influences? My biggest Influences are my family, Robin Williams, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock and KISS.

Describe your show in three words? Life, changing, experience.

Who are you looking forward to seeing this year at the festival? Oh man, there are so many good acts this year but if I had to narrow it down to just one I would say Cal Wilson.
