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.

Proudly supporting Oxfam

We’re rolling out the red carpet once again for the biggest night on Australia's comedy calendar.

It’s the comedy event of the year so tickets won’t be around for long. Book now to be part of the magic and to support Oxfam – changing the world by empowering communities to tackle poverty. Don't miss out!

Please note, the following performances will be filmed: Wed 20 Mar.
