What if Sly Stallone’s films about a Philadelphian boxer were written by The Bard?

Rocky the Third will be playing at The Butterfly Club as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival from March 25th. For more information, visit


Originally aired Wednesday, March 6th. Produced by Tom Parry.
