Once again the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for 2018 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.

We also feature some shows that may be suitable for a deaf or hard of hearing audience.
The following shows, though not Auslan interpreted, are suitable for a deaf or hard of hearing audience and people who speak a language other than English. These shows are primarily physical or visual, with little to no spoken dialogue. CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF SHOWS.
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.
