ABC Radio Melbourne and Melbourne International Comedy Festival

ABC Radio in Residence

Celebrating the launch of the Festival, ABC Radio Melbourne will be broadcasting live from Melbourne Town Hall on the Festival's Opening Weekend Friday 31 March - Sunday 2 April. Click here for more details and updates.

The immersive experience begins in the wee hours of Friday morning with Red Symon's on Breakfast, followed by Jon Faine's Mornings Program and Conversation Hour. After lunch steady yourselves for the Friday Revue, live and slightly dangerous hosted by Richelle Hunt and Brian Nankervis. Less dangerous, equally dashing Raf Epstein's Drive program will wrap up the day-long live radio set with a cracking program

Saturday morning with Hilary Harper is all about kids and families and will showcase some of the Comedy Club for kids acts. Join us for a morning of free family fun with acrobats, stacks of giveaways, magic and prizes for kids who dress up! The rollicking continues with the stalwarts of Saturday morning footy talk the Coodabeens Champions.

On Sunday morning Libbi Gorr brings it all together, live from the Peter Cook Bar concluding our three day radio-residency.

All welcome!
