Roadshow 2021

Australia’s favourite comedy convoy can't wait to tour Australia once again!

Join the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow in 2021 as it rolls across the country to home deliver the Comedy Festival vibe to every crack and crevice of Australia. From Bega to Broome, Townsville to Traralgon, we’re criss-crossing the country taking in more than 80 destinations along the way. More than any year before, our comedians are champing at the bit to break out from the barriers, shake off the seclusion and roll out the laughs.

With an all killer, no filler line-up of Australian stars and talented newcomers, buckle in for a night of stand-up, sketch, satire, silliness and song to satisfy all your comedy cravings!
