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.

Winner Best Daily Podcast 2020 British Podcast Awards 

Winner Dave Joke of the Fringe 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Winner Three Weeks Editors' Awards 2017

Fresh from a sold-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe season, award-winning writer, comedian and actor Rob Auton brings his newest show, The Rob Auton Show to Melbourne.

Rob’s previous shows include The Yellow Show, The Sleep Show and The Hair Show. In his most autobiographical show to date, Rob turns the spotlight inward, delving into the memories and feelings that shape his everyday existence.

Celebrated for his distinctive blend of stand-up comedy and poetry, Rob offers audiences a captivating experience that challenges traditional comedic boundaries. With his offbeat humour and masterful wordplay, Rob’s performances are a delightful exploration of the human condition and the absurdities of everyday life, leaving a lasting impression on those who have the pleasure of an hour in his company.

As seen on Starstruck, Cold Feet, The End of the F*cking World, Miracle Workers, The Russell Howard Show and Rob Delaney’s Stand Up Central.
