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.

For more than 20 years The Wharf Revue has delivered razor-sharp political satire to audiences in Sydney and around the country. Now it’s Melbourne’s turn!

From the creator of the smash hit The Gospel According to Paul that sold out its 2021 season at Arts Centre, join Jonathan Biggins and the Revue’s Team of Rivals as they step into the Melbourne spotlight with this year’s hilarious Pride in Prejudice.

Featuring a line-up of characters including Anthony Albanese, Tanya Plibersek, Jacqui Lambie, Joe Biden, Sussan Ley and Peter Dutton, and riffing off shows including Q&A, Play School, Stephen Sondheim’s Company and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific, Pride in Prejudice is: 'The quintessential take down of Australia’s most well-known pollies.' ABC

'I feared my face would crack from laughing so much' Sydney Morning Herald

'Pride In Prejudice is as good as it gets; it is funny, comically tragic and very targeted for an enthusiastic audience' Canberra City News

'The laughs come non-stop, regardless of your political persuasion.' Australian Arts Review

'on target and brilliant ... a work of comic genius' Stage Noise

The Wharf Revue's Melbourne season is supported by the University of Melbourne Performing Arts.
