Once again the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for 2017 is committed to making a number of its shows accessible to patrons.

Many of the venues hosting Comedy Festival shows will be accessible for persons with mobility issues and we'll also have a number of shows and events interpreted by Auslan (Australian Sign Language) interpreters.

We are continuing to refine the added features to our website to allow patrons to search by accessible venues in the drop down menu at the top of the homepage, and included a list of Auslan interpreted shows below.
