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.

One of the biggest and most loved comedy festival is in the world!

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is a mainstay of Melbourne’s major events calendar; one of the top three comedy festivals in the world, and one of Australia’s largest and most loved cultural events.

For three and a half weeks in March and April all Melbourne – and audiences more broadly – are invited to load up on laughs, with comedians hitting stages (screens and airwaves) right across the city. The Festival has something for every comedy lover with world-class special events, trail-blazing solo shows and late-night fun. Comedy tours and development programs are delivered nationally to capital cities, and regional communities.

The Festival offers a unique platform to reach highly engaged consumers in a way no other event can. Connect with us to discuss opportunities to partner with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and align your brand with the organsation that brings audiences together to celebrate the fun, the fearless and the rebellious!

Conceived to promote the comedic arts in Australia, the Festival has earned its global reputation through creative, eclectic programming. The organisation is active year-round with national and international touring, educational and artistic development programs complementing the presentation of the annual four-week festival.

Let’s have a laugh. For more information about partnership opportunities please contact
