Bonner brings her new show Elephant to the festival, summarising it with; “The day my Nan died, I hosted an all-female comedy night in Brisbane. It did not bring her back to life.

While Aaron Chen’s bringing his If Weren’t Filmed, Nobody Would Believe, named after the titural football-highlights video on YouTube: “I was watching football highlights and one of the videos was titled, Goals If Weren’t Filmed, Nobody Would Believe.
