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!

As Dan Andrews exits stage left, join the star and creator of the smash hit The Gospel According to Paul Jonathan Biggins and the Revue’s Team of Rivals as they step into the Melbourne spotlight with this year’s hilarious new production, 'Pride in Prejudice'.

'Pride in Prejudice' is a sensational value proposition from Australia’s most trusted revue-based practitioners. Satirical content is up by 7% and the average laughter quotient is indexed at 8.3% over the forward estimates but the Revue defies the cost-of-living pressure with an offering at yesterday’s prices.

The Wharf Revue guarantees one exceptional night of laughter, with no jokes written by ChatGPT and no sketches outsourced to PWC.

Disclaimer: Reputations may be questioned, political careers damaged and some sacred cows slaughtered. Due to public demand, full-frontal nudity will not be included. Any similarity to public figures living or dead is entirely intentional.

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