Melbourne International Comedy Festival

The festival


An annual event, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival literally takes over Australia’s comedy capital, Melbourne, each autumn with an enormous program of stand-up comedy, cabaret, theatre, street performance, film, television, radio and visual arts.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival organisation provides the environment and promotional activities that unite and support all events. The Comedy Festival creates and manages a large number of the venues used for the Festival, presents a program of the best contemporary comedy from overseas and produces a significant number of special events for stage and screen.

The annual Melbourne International Comedy Festival is the culmination of our ongoing activities and for three and a half weeks each year, makes Melbourne the centre of the comedy universe.
