Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala

A good laugh is a mighty good thing!



Get your fill of both giggles AND goodness yet again when Oxfam teams up with Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) to present the Comedy Festival Gala.

Laugh, giggle and guffaw to your heart’s content as the cream of the comedy crop, from Australia and overseas, take to the stage to support Oxfam’s life-changing work.

This year, the festival runs from 25 March to 19 April, marking 25 sidesplitting, poverty-tackling years of partnership with Oxfam.

Alas, tickets to the Gala have sold out! But don’t despair; you can still partake in the hilarity (and tackle poverty) by watching the television broadcast on the ABC.  Keep an eye out for broadcast details here!

And there are plenty of other ways to get involved:

Make change with spare change

Poverty is no laughing matter. But what if your giggles could improve someone’s life?

Round up your ticket price to any MICF show by a few dollars when you book online — and make change happen with your spare change.

While you settle in to enjoy the show, your gift will be busy at work, helping Oxfam tackle poverty around the world. Your $5 change can give a Nepalese family a bucket to collect safe drinking water after floods devastate their home. Or $50 can build a brand new tap stand for the whole community.

So go on… give a gift, have a giggle.
