An annual event, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival literally takes over Australia’s comedy capital, Melbourne, each autumn with an enormous program of stand-up comedy, cabaret, theatre, street performance, film, television, radio and visual arts.
The Festival was launched in 1987 by Barry Humphries and Peter Cook. Twenty-six festivals later, with attendances of over 600,000, it has grown to be Australia’s largest cultural event – selling more tickets than any other Australian Festival. With an average ticket price of just $26, the Comedy Festival is not only a hugely popular event but an extremely accessible one. When the Melbourne Town Hall precinct is converted into a giant comedy hub, there is something for every comedy lover, from the very best local and international comedy acts in venues of all shapes and sizes.

The Bane trilogy completed it’s debut London run with a sell out performance of all three shows on a packed evening inside the Soho Theatre on Sunday night. The box-set-marathon had only ever been attempted once before. Fortunately, this didn’t prove beyond performers Bone & Roe, with Exuent magazine calling the cine-soaked trilogy ‘Extraordinary’ and One Stop Arts adding that it was a ‘Wonderful show’. The critical reception was fantastic throughout the week with The Times calling Bane 1 ‘Excellent’ and Chortle adding that Bone was ‘A powerhouse talent’. We’d like to thank everyone who came to see the shows throughout the week, we hope to be back in London again soon. Bane’s next performance will be at Perth’s Blue Rooms on February 12th, as the shows head across Australia for the first time. (More news on where you can see the shows in Australia to follow.)
“Joe Bone’s performance is phenomenal... The real joy comes from the craftsmanship Bone has put in - there are some dizzying elaborate set pieces here... extremely funny”
British Theatre Guide
“In a brilliant parody of the film noir style, Joe Bone has manufactured a brilliantly funny show where he plays a plethora of varying roles in this dark and inverted story... accompanied to great effect by a constant live soundtrack from Ben Roe”
