25 March - 19 April 2020

Melbourne becomes comedy capital of the UNIVERSE each April, as we take over the city with an enormous program of stand-up comedy, cabaret, theatre, street performance, film, television, radio and visual arts.

The 2020 Melbourne International Comedy Festival turns 34 celebrating with its biggest festival, with more shows and venues than ever, becoming one of the world's largest and most respected comedy festivals.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival is Australia's largest ticketed cultural event, and one of the top three largest comedy festivals in the world, alongside Montreal's Just for Laughs and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

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.

Arguably the crown jewel in Melbourne's entertainment calendar, the festival brings together both local and international performers for over 3 weeks of comedy, music, sly social commentary and most importantly of all.. laughs!
