The Comedy Theatre
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The Comedy Theatre building is a landmark in the heart of Melbourne's CBD. Formerly the location of the sadly departed Hippodrome, here the spirit of theatrical entertainment is soaked into the ground.
Don’t let the name fool you – the Comedy Theatre is not just home to stand-up stars and their water bottles. The theatre has hosted blockbuster acts and musicals. Famous names to grace the stage over the years include Rex Harrison, Frank Thring and Vincent Price.
These days it is less theatrical melodrama and more hysterical laughter, as the Comedy Theatre welcomes stand-up back chat from funny folks of all persuasions. It's an awe-inspiring venue, and it takes some big laughs to lift this old roof.
