The Aussies are here to tickle your funny bones at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival

If you like Aussie humour, Australia’s largest and best-loved comedy festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival returns to Singapore this year, bringing with it a cast of seriously funny comedians from down under.

Over three nights only, five diverse and dynamic performers hand-picked by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival are set to bring their A-game to Singapore, showcasing stand-up, sketch and satire at their best.

Bringing the fun to Singapore for over a decade, the Comedy Festival Roadshow ends a massive tour of more than one hundred shows across Australia, before arriving at Hong Kong and Singapore.

The line-up for 2018 includes:

He quickly put his humour to good use in an industry that’s far more fun! He’s toured internationally and headlined spots in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Singapore, as well as performed in seven Melbourne International Comedy Festivals including sold-out smash-hit shows in 2017 and 2018.
