Melbourne International Comedy Festival


See Website

Launched in 1987 by Barry Humphries (of Dame Edna fame) and Peter Cook, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival hosts local and international comedy stars at venues throughout the city. One of the three largest comedy festivals in the world (the other two being Edinburgh’s Fringe and Montreal’s Just for Laughs), the festival basically takes over the city for several weeks in March and April with a large program of stand-up, cabaret, theatre, street performance and visual arts.
