Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

After a year like no other, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience returns to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for 2021! Continuing to make its mark as an ‘outrageously funny’ night out (BroadwayBaby), tickets have sold out all over the world from Sydney Opera House to London’s West End. Be warned: tickets will sell out here too, so early booking is essential!

Be part of the action as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a three-course meal and plenty of laughs in the five-star show where anything can happen and usually does – because it's 70% improvised! Expect nothing short of guaranteed fun and a brilliant night out in this fully immersive, highly interactive and completely original show that wins five-star reviews wherever it goes.

Brisbane born in 1997, the show has been receiving critical and audience acclaim ever since. It’s visited 40 countries over the years, and is constantly touring Europe, Scandinavia, Asia and Australia. It also returns every year to Adelaide Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival and has an ongoing residency in London’s West End.
