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.

Arbory's Silent Comedy Festival

Arbory's Silent Comedy Festival

Get ready to don your headphones and laugh out loud (to yourself) with the return of Arbory Bar & Eatery's annual Silent Comedy Festival. 

Putting an entertaining spin on a traditional comedy show, it's an experience much like a silent disco in which guests can enjoy sarcastic gags, jokes, banter and zinging one-liners through headphones; spontaneously breaking out into laughter in response to what seems like nothing at all. 

An all-star line-up of local and international comedians will take to the mic this year, including local crowd favourites and surprise international guests. Jimeoin, Lawrence Mooney, Simon Taylor, Ting Lim, Dolly Diamond, Bev Killick, Bob Franklin, Andrew Barnett and Takashi Wakasugi are just a few of those set to make an appearance. The full line-up can be found here.

Hosted on select Wednesdays & Thursdays from 27 March - 18 April, sessions begin at 8pm each night and run until 9.30 pm, with a 15-minute intermission. Tickets start at $30 per person, inclusive of five sets from five comedians.

Suitable for audiences 18+
