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.

Late Show

A Festival night isn’t over ‘til you’ve experienced our Late Show!

Kick on past bedtime at Comedy Republic every Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the Festival with raucous line-ups of comedians ready to party. Plus, join us for an extra special Easter Sunday edition.

Expect loads of spontaneous late-night antics from our special co-host combos. See all your favourites live and loose as they riff together and come up with off-the-cuff comedy gold.

We've handpicked some outrageously hot line-ups, plus last minute surprise drop-ins aplenty! After the show, the fun continues as comedians and punters enjoy a Festival nightcap in the bar.

Past co-hosts include Geraldine Hickey, Luke McGregor, Denise Scott, Randy Feltface, Rhys Nicholson, Claire Hooper and more.

Suitable for audiences 18+

This show contains: Occasional coarse language.
