If you want to see the best of international and Australian comedians performing stand-up, cabaret, street theatre and in film, television and radio you need to get yourself to Melbourne for three and a half weeks during April. There you’ll join about 400,000 others in laughter at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. More than 200 different shows, held in numerous venues all over the city, culminate in the televised Gala from the Town Hall.

Some events are held in local pubs to small audience while the better known artists pack out theatres and the Town Hall. Several Comedy talent competitions are run as part of the festival with winners performing at the Gala.
