Melbourne International Comedy Gala

A little introduction

The Melbourne International Comedy festival Gala needs little introduction.

Thanks to some of the greatest local and international comedy stars (and a legion of generous comedy fans) The Gala kick-starts a month of laughter and collects donations for Oxfam.

2014 Gala host, Eddie Perfect, will lead an awesome line-up at St Kilda’s historic Palais Theatre in support of Oxfam’s development work around the world.

Watching The Gala

The Gala is undeniably the hottest show in town with tickets selling out within minutes. Network Ten cameras will be on hand to record the show in front of a live audience with the event broadcast across Australia to give you at home an opportunity to donate.

Dairy farming in Bangladesh

Across the world, women are more likely to live in poverty. But in Bangladesh, dairy farming is creating income for women like Aklima. Together, we can help more women take control of their lives.
