One perfect night this March, the greatest stars of local and international comedy make their way by foot, car, plane, tram and uber to the beautiful Regent Theatre on Collins Street for a fabulous night of comedy gold and karmic brownie points.
The Gala is the biggest night on the comedy calendar, and an opportunity to get in an early giggle or 30 before the official kick-off of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival on 29 March. Artists donate their time for this super-sized special event, and through the generosity of those on stage and those in the audience, The Gala supports the life-changing work of Oxfam worldwide.
The 2017 Gala sold out within a day of going on sale in November 2016. The line-up will be announced in the lead up to the event. Oxfam’s partnership with the Festival has helped improve the lives of thousands of people by providing clean water, increasing incomes, improving crops, reducing disease, and securing greater access to health care and education. So many comedians, one giant bill, three hours of massive laughs courtesy of some of the funniest comedians in the world.
