Every year Melbourne becomes a comedy capital, conquering the city, with a vast program of stand-up Comedy cabaret, theatre, street performances, cinema, television, radio and visual arts.
The 2019 Melbourne Comedy Festival runs from March 27 to April 21, 2019, and marks its 33rd anniversary. There are more number of shows and venues than ever before and it has become one of the most important and respected comedy festivals in the world.
The Melbourne Comedy Festival is Australia’s largest cultural event and one of the world’s three largest Comedy festivals. The annual Melbourne Comedy Festival literally tackles the Australian comedy capital, with extensive programs of lined up comedy.
Probably the flagship of Melbourne’s entertainment calendar; the comedy festival brings together local and international artists who laugh at comedy, music, misleading social commentary and, above all, for more than 3 weeks!
