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.

Martin Urbano Apology Comeback Tour (United States)

Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Martin Urbano Apology Comeback Tour (USA)

Martin Urbano spent his long, lucky career talking and saying anything he wanted – until allegations surfaced. He stepped out of the spotlight, promising to take a long time to listen. Now he’s back!

Martin tackles his allegations (and much more!) in this long-awaited apology comeback show. He shares his humorous musings on being cancelled, woke Twitter mobs and Uber.

‘Walks a high-wire act on hot button issues of offence in comedy’ ★★★★ Chortle (UK)

‘Martin Urbano is sincerely subversive.’ The New York Times (USA)

Martin has written for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Chris Gethard Show, Danny Brown’s show on Viceland and National Lampoon’s Radio Hour. As a stand-up he has been seen on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Comedy Central’s Featured, CW’s Howie Mandel Gala and This Joka presented by Will Smith (pre-slap).

Martin was a New Face at Just For Laughs, named one of Vulture’s Top Comedians You Should Know, and has performed at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, New York Comedy Festival and the Boston Calling Music Festival.
