Comedy Commutes

You don’t have to leave your neck of the woods to enjoy the Comedy Festival vibe! 

Every weekend of the Festival, a carefully crafted mix of familiar faces and fresh new talent will commute to some favourite local venues around Melbourne. We’ll bring you a side-splitting night of hard-hitting laughter, a little closer to home.

With an outrageously talented MC and a line-up of fantastically funny comedians in each show, Comedy Commutes will take big laughs well beyond the CBD!

Grab your mates, put that Myki away and leave the car at home - this is your chance to see one of the Comedy Festival’s famed line-up shows without leaving your neighbourhood.
