Accessibility

Melbourne International Comedy Festival strives to provide access and inclusion for all people.
 
Once the 2021 season program is live shows in the Festival can be searched by accessible features in the advance search when browsing shows here. This search feature filters performances by wheelchair accessibility, hearing loop availability, suitability for blind or low vision, suitability for deaf or hard of hearing, and shows with Auslan interpreted sessions.
A list of Auslan interpreted and Relaxed performances can also be found below.
 
Accessibility for patrons using wheelchairs varies from venue to venue and detailed information regarding the accessibility of each venue is provided on the website on each event listing by clicking More Info under each venue name.
 
If an event shows this wheelchair symbol  then the venue is wheelchair accessible. If the wheelchair symbol is not shown, access may be partial. We encourage you to email access@comedyfestival.com.au or call the MICF Box Office on (03) 9245 3788 to check whether a venue can provide you with the access you need. If you require a wheelchair space in ANY venue, please contact (03) 9245 3788. Similarly, if you have access requirements for the Melbourne Town Hall – Main Hall or RMIT Capitol Theatre, please contact (03) 9245 3788. For any other access requests, there is an option to provide details when purchasing tickets online through the MICF website and this information will be forwarded to the front of house staff at each venue.

Relaxed performances
Relaxed Performances welcome audiences who may require a more relaxed sensory experience and casual environment. Audiences can expect a reduction in the intensity of light and sound, access to a de-stress break area, the house lights staying up, and a relaxed attitude to noise and movement from the audience during the show.
