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.

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare Macbeth (United Kingdom)

A-List Entertainment

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare Macbeth (UK)

The hilarious, smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, multi sell-out festival phenomenon returns to Melbourne to help you enjoy Shakespeare responsibly!

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare is the hilarious blend of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely sh!t-faced actor. What could possibly go right? With a genuinely inebriated cast member each night, no two shows are ever the same in this raucous, riotous, rampage through Shakespeare's most iconic play – Macbeth.

Warning: this show includes a genuinely drunk performer and anything could happen. This show may contain drinking, swearing, nudity, simulated acts of a sexual nature, terrible singing, actual acts of a sexual nature and quite possibly – some actual Shakespeare.

'The most fun I've ever had at the Festival. I left with tears streaming down my face and a sore belly from laughing far far too hysterically hard.' ★★★★★ Collage Adelaide

'No-holds-barred ecstasy.' ★★★★★ Broadway Baby (UK)

'Hilarious.' ★★★★★ Adelaide Advertiser

'A hilarious, laugh-a-minute riot.' ★★★★ The Clothesline

'Wherever I looked I saw hands over mouths and bodies bent over, shrieking with laughter.' ★★★★★ West End Wilma

Suitable for audiences 15+
