Comedy at Spleen
Time Out says
Start your week right with a live comedy show every Monday evening at Spleen
Spleen's regular weekly comedy nights are back, with shows every Monday evening from November 1. The bar (found at the top of Bourke Street) has been hosting live comedy for more than a decade and is regarded as one of the top locations to see a gig in Melbourne. Sure, there's plenty of up and comers on show, but a night at Spleen Comedy might also find you enjoying new material from some of Australia's leading comics.
Back in the olden days (that is, pre-2020) Spleen was known to pack out its Monday comedy gigs, with standing space only right to the door. It was a popularity achieved partly due to the great line-ups... and partly because entry was by gold coin donation. These days, of course, there's a set number of tickets and they'll cost you (a still very affordable) $5-$10, but you'll still want to nab your spot early to avoid missing out. FYI ticket sales can usually be found online via the event's Facebook page.
Shows are every Monday at 8.30pm. Before and after shows you may also wish to acquaint yourself with Spleen's food and drink menu, which is packed with American diner fare like hot wings, hot dogs, chilli fries and hefty cheeseburgers. Plus the bar stays open till 5am most nights (and till late on Mondays), so there's plenty of time to get a Spleena Colada after the show.
