Melbourne City
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.

Booking Your Ticket
Of course, if you want to laugh at the comedians, it does help if you can get inside the door.

Not surprisingly in this digital age, the easiest way to book is online. The main provider of tickets for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is Ticketmaster. However, just check out the pages for your chosen venue to be sure. On that note, the websites for each country the festival tours will provide full information for booking. The main website also offers tickets, and will have the full schedule of 2014 tour from February.

Tickets can also be bought in person at Melbourne’™s town hall, or also at the door of most venues. However, it is best to book early, as this event draws quite a crowd … after all, who couldn’t do with a little more laughter in their lives?

Age Matters

With this festival, please remember that age does matter. Some of the sketches are hilarious, but may also contain sexual or politically incorrect content. So, to really enjoy this show without any embarrassing situations, please consider the age that each act is aimed at.

Cultural Charms
This is Deadly Funny, no seriously, that is what this event is called. Deadly Funny is dedicated to Aboriginal humor and Torres Strait Islanders. It is in your face, it is colourful and it will surprise!

Top performers, new arrivals and tricks galore. Be sure not to miss this years comedy tour.
