Lynda Gibson died on January 2, 2004 after a long battle with cancer. Lynda (aka Gibbo/Gib) had for many years been an integral part of the Melbourne Comedy scene, having performed in and around every Melbourne Comedy Festival since 1987. Lynda was a stand-up comedian who never stood still and whose left wing politics and keen sense of social justice were never hidden. Her physicality was a measure of her commitment and as a performer she threw herself (literally) at her work.

The Golden Gibbo award is $3000 cash plus the Golden Gibbo statue which looks suspiciously like a bottle of shitty red wine. Lynda’s contribution and spirit is acknowledged every year by the Melbourne comedy community through the Golden Gibbo.
