Variety is back! Since 2006 Ali McGregor's Late-Nite Variety-Nite Night has been enticing audiences at  Melbourne International Comedy Festival and beyond. It has become a cult late-night show that draws the biggest comedy acts, the sexiest burlesque, heart stopping cabaret and the most jaw-dropping circus acts from around the Festival. Hand-picked by Ali, this variety show is a carefully curated night of quality entertainment.

After a year off, this exclusive season promises to have more spontaneous headline guests, higher notes and more gin than ever before! As always Ali’s show-stopping vocals will be backed by one of the finest jazz trios in town led by Sam Keevers. Guests of previous years have included Tim Minchin, Hannah Gadsby, Denise Scott, Adam Hills, Rich Hall, Eddie Perfect, Jason Byrne, Ronny Chieng, Sammy J & Randy, Geraldine Hickey, Lady Rizo, Hamish & Andy and The Doug Anthony All Stars.

The Comedy Festival's top cabaret, vaudeville and stand-up acts, this late-night variety special is the best-value show in town.' The Age
