The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is the second largest comedy festival in the world (sorry Edinburgh, but you're technically a fringe festival), with thousands descending on the city every autumn for a hearty dose of hilarity. But the locals love to laugh at all times of the year, which is why you'll find regular comedy shows happening every day of the week here in Melbourne.
Melbourne has one comedy club that runs almost every night of the week (the Comic’s Lounge) and is definitely worth checking out. But there are plenty of other rooms that operate one, two or three nights a week as well. Here are our picks.
Keen for a post-show drink? Visit one of Melbourne's best bars so the laughs can keep rollin'.
