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.

Melbourne Comedy Festival: Comedy Care Package

At a time when audiences would usually be flocking to the Festival, the crowds and comedians are stuck at home. So whilst we can't bring you 2020 shows, we're proud to announce that we have worked with ABC TV to bring the Festival into your homes and onto your screens with a special Comedy Care Package this Sunday 12 April at 8.30pm

Hosted by comedy legend Denise Scott, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival: Comedy Care Package features some of the best local acts from the ABC's Festival broadcasts of the past three years, including Aaron Chen, Anne Edmonds, Becky Lucas, Cal Wilson, Dave Hughes, Frank Woodley, Kitty Flanagan, Nazeem Hussain, Steph Tisdell, Tom Gleeson, Urzila Carlson and many more…

Denise Scott says, “this program proves that nothing can stop Australians laughing, even if we do have to do it into our elbows, sitting 1.5 meters apart.”  Scott continued  “Hosting this outstanding line-up of comedians, in these extraordinarily difficult times, is the greatest honour of my career.”

Join us this Easter Sunday for two hours of non-stop comedy which will have all of Australia laughing together, even in the age of social distancing.
