It might be called the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, but it isnÃ¢ÂÂt just based in Melbourne, it isnÃ¢ÂÂt even only based in Australia. This famous festival has gone global and is spreading laughter around the world.
Comedians on tour, all together! A personal assistants nightmare, but sure to cause more than a few hilarious antics along the route. Initially covering Australia's main areas, but also now touring many countries around the globe. The situations that they could get themselves into are only limited by their imaginations, and boy oh bot do they have some extreme imaginations!
If you want to watch it in the original city of Melbourne, then you will be in for a nice treat. Accommodation is plentiful and this area is famous for its culinary delights and vibrant atmosphere. There is plenty of shopping in the area too, so if you plan to catch the comedy festival here, why not make a few days of it and enjoy the break.
