Save the date now, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival will be back for more laughs in 2024 – from Wednesday 27 March – Sunday 21 April 2024.
If you’re in Melbourne in April, you’re in for a laugh, with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival taking over the city and beyond with its laugh riot of stand-up comedy, cabaret and street performance.
Since starting in 1987, it’s now one of the biggest comedy festivals in the world (alongside the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival), attracting literally thousands of comedians who you can see in grand theatres, local pubs, cabaret clubs and tiny bars. Catch major national and international acts, along with up-and-comers that just might go on to be the Next Big Thing.
The Festival is Australia’s biggest ticketed event, selling around 770,000 seats each year, so come along and see Melbourne in all its side-splitting glory.
