Amazing Drumming Monkeys

Amazing Drumming Monkeys

Australia’s favourite family puppet show is making its Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut with a brand new character, 'Kiiko' and her funky little drum kit.

The Amazing Drumming Monkeys have been wowing audiences around Australia and overseas for the past 16 years. A clever combination of puppetry, live music, comedy and heartwarming themes, it’s a funny and engaging show for the whole family.


Cute and funny monkeys for the kids.

Great drumming for the adults.

Funny segments for all ages.

And a message for the world.

Kids and parents will be laughing, dancing and drumming together! It's a fantastic show.
