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.

The Running Joke

Tom Witcombe White Collar/Dark Jokes

The Running Joke

Tom Witcombe White Collar/Dark Jokes

White Collar/Dark Jokes – four words that sum up everything that Tom Witcombe is and does. This is a stand-up comedy hour packed full of razor sharp jokes and devastating punchlines from a comedian who doesn't believe in too soon or too far.

For lovers of Jimmy Carr, Anthony Jeselnik and Frankie Boyle, come see the closest thing Australia has to offer. 

Bring friends who have a good sense of humour, or friends without one who you'd like to watch feel very uncomfortable for an hour.

Tom Witcombe has performed at Melbourne Town Hall, Edinburgh Fringe and comedy clubs in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and London; has generated millions of views (and hundreds of angry comments) across social media platforms; has opened for the likes of Amos Gill, Daniel Muggleton and Frenchy; has an independently produced YouTube special with over 80k views.

"Reprehensible bastard with great jokes. Real funny. Get in." Luke Heggie

'Confident, articulate and very funny...a comedian on the rise.' ★★★★ See Do Eat

'Tom Witcombe started strongly before losing the crowd with an unnecessary jibe at women’s athletics.' The Age

Suitable for audiences 18+
