Sydney-based comedian Zoë Coombs Marr took home the prestigious Barry Award for Most Outstanding Show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) on Saturday night, for her self-produced work Trigger Warning.

She was won the Golden Gibbo Award (for a show which ‘pursues the artist’s idea more strongly than it pursues any commercial lure’), making her only the second comedian to win both awards since the Gibbo was first awarded 12 years ago.
