Our 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Programs Are Here

Crowded in Twenty Eighteen

2018 is shaping up to be a great year for Crowded. This year we’ve added Pilgrim to our small fleet of pop-up spaces for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF).  As a result, we’re involved with over 70 productions across the festival.  Click on the links above to the programs, or click here to see The Butterfly Club program.

In February, Tom will be heading to Adelaide Fringe as a presenter for the Honey Pot program. He’ll see as many new shows as he can fit into his schedule. Contact us if you are going to be in Adelaide, and you want us to see your work.
Later in the year, Crowded will co-produce some hand-picked productions at the Edinburgh Fringe. We’ll also use this opportunity to scout work for our 2019 projects. Due to the success of our hit show Young Hearts Run Free in Brisbanewe’re working on some new potential shows to be announced. In addition to all of this, we will continue to take on ad-hoc client work across event management, design and publicity.

Twenty Seventeen Highlights

In 2017 Crowded presented another great program at Belleville, and for the first time, co-presented a massive program at Tasma Terrace with Enter Closer (The Butterfly Club) for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (click here to see photos). The programs were a huge success and we want to thank EVERYONE that was involved.

Ange & Tom spent July – September in the UK, on a very successful tour with Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret About Gin. The production sold out every show in Edinburgh, including the three extra shows due to popular demand. In September we produced the Young Hearts Run Free opening party for Brisbane Festival at the Tivoli, which was an absolute pleasure.

These are a few highlights of what was a great year! If you would like to be kept informed of our upcoming projects, events and news, you can sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear. ✌

About Us

Crowded co-founders Ange Devery and Tom Dickins

Crowded is founded by Ange Devery and Tom Dickins. We dedicate ourselves to help our clients find their crowd by utilising decades of experience in event management, publicity and design.

Our work is focused primarily in the arts, however our clients come from a diverse range of industries, with unique ideas, products, and needs. As a result, our way of working is flexible and adaptive. We deliver highly creative and thoroughly executed events, clever PR campaigns and high-end design work that amplifies your voice.

We meet with our clients to understand why they are doing the work they are doing, and then work our arses off to help them find their audiences online and on stage.

You’ll find us mostly between Melbourne and Castlemaine, however, we service clients and deliver projects globally.


We have a strong love for event planning, management and delivery. We have years of experience in Tour Managing and producing works in Australia and Internationally.

Additionally, we have worked on the planning and delivery of unique parties, launches and social functions, and have curated four years highly successful MICF programs.

We know how to deliver an event from concept development, communication strategy, on-the-ground logistics to we-sold-out-high-fives-all-around.


The publicity landscape is littered with buzzwords and catchphrases, high end invoices with no accountability, and promises that can’t be kept.

Last year we worked on over 200 projects to deliver highly personalised media and publicity campaigns for Melbourne based performers and producers. This level of work gives us a unique understanding of the Australian media (and social media) landscape.


The design services see Ange Devery at the helm. From years of experience designing for artists and performers, Ange creates elegant designs that reflect the identity of Crowded’s clients.
