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.

Amazing Drumming Monkeys THE Show For Little Kids

Amazing Drumming Monkeys THE Show For Little Kids

The Amazing Drumming Monkeys show is now 20 years old!  And still going stronger than ever.

Widely touted as Australia’s favourite little kids’ puppet show, the monkeys have performed at festivals and events all over the world. Now they are finally coming to Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the first time.

This is a must see for families with toddlers and young children. The whole family will be laughing, dancing and drumming together! It's a fantastic show.

A unique and clever combination of puppetry, live music, comedy and heart-warming themes, this is a funny and engaging show for the whole family. 

Also… the adults often enjoy it just as much as the kids.
