You can still catch a bunch of MICF shows on demand via the festival’s digital hub.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival has come and gone for another year, but it’s not quite over just yet. While the festival’s run has concluded, you can still watch a spread of MICF shows and content online until Friday April 30.

From behind the curtain peeks to classic clips, panels and more, the laughs keep on coming with MICF’s newly-launched digital hub.

Get all the latest comedy news and reviews here.

Crafted as a result of the impact COVID-19 had on both last year’s cancelled festival and this year’s reduced-capacity events, the online space allows comedy fans from across the country to enjoy MICF from the comfort of their own homes.

You can join Dave Thornton for a comedic docuseries in which he visits a range of comedy pros as they test their new material with Comedy Rooms of Melbourne – Basement Comedy or catch the likes of Geraldine Hickey and Hughesy as part of a four-part series that sees comedians assemble line-ups of their own comedy favourites.

Plus, you can go deep with panels and conversations, such as Deadly Funny: In Conversation which sees three of Australia’s finest First Nations comedians discuss their experiences and the barriers facing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in the comedy industry.

And best of all, you can watch whenever suits you (until the end of the month) on demand, with a bunch of free shows and season passes available.

So, go on and squeeze in some last laughs while you can. It’ll be another year before the next funny season.
