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.

Kru Harale and Olga Loitsenko

Comedy Roulette – Spin That Wheel! (Australia,Estonia,India)

Kru Harale and Olga Loitsenko

Comedy Roulette – Spin That Wheel! (AUS,EST,IND)

A stand-up comedy show with a spontaneous twist. Audience spins the wheel. Comedians crack improvised jokes! 

Imagine spinning a wheel with a variety of hilarious topics – from 'awkward family gatherings' to 'Self-help book titles that won't sell'. Each comedian delivers a well-crafted set, and spontaneous jokes inspired by the topics the wheel lands on.

Each night we showcase a rotating lineup of six hilarious comedians – from local comedy sensations to comics who've been on TV and radio. Comedy Roulette transforms every performance into a hilarious game of chance, adding surprise and creativity for both performers and the audience. 

Hosted by Mumbai's sweetheart Kru Harale and Estonian sensation Olga Loitsenko, get ready to dive into a world of hilarity with Comedy Roulette – where the wheel spins, the jokes fly and the laughter never stops. With guests such as He Huang, Mike Goldstein, Danielle Walker, Dane Simpson, Takashi Wakasugi, Henry Yan, Michael Shafar, Stephanie Broadbridge, Chris Ryan, Rowan Thambar and many more, this show is a must-watch at the Melbourne Comedy Festival!
