Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Plan ahead when you hit the road, and if you're going to drink, don't drive

Melbourne International Comedy Festival is out on Roadshow with TAC, and we want everyone coming to the shows to travel safely.

Whether it's the bus, train, ride-share or a lift home with mates (or your mum!), there are always other options than drink driving. So all jokes aside, if you're heading to a Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow performance (or any gig!) and planning to drink, remember to think ahead – leave the car key and plan an alternative way home.

The video above was created by LateNite Films for TAC and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, starting Gillian Cosgriff and Diana Nguyen.

“A great night out with friends is something we all look forward to, but it’s important to remember that it’s never worth risking your life or someone else’s by drink driving. If you choose to drink, don’t drive” said TAC Acting Head of Marketing, Communications & External Affairs, Kylie Grzybek.

Kristy from Warrnambool was treated to a chauffeured trip to and from the Roadshow in her town, along with comedian Lizzy Hoo.

Kobi from Sale won a trip to and from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow at The Wedge along with comedian Ivan Aristeguieta.

Make sure you stay safe travelling to and from the giggles. If you're planning to drink alcohol, nominate a driver who isn’t drinking, grab a taxi, rideshare or take public transport. Or, if you need to drive home, avoid drinking alcohol altogether to ensure everyone gets home safely.
