Melbourne Comedy HQ at Speakeasy HQ

I know a dark, secluded place, a place where no one knows your face, a glass of wine, a fast embrace… it's called Speakeasy HQ.

I have got to tell you this is one of the best live show joints in town. On approach you will hear the music, song and laughter from the footpath as you make your way to 522 Flinders St, Melbourne and climb the stairs to level 2 for a heavenly evening of fabulous entertainment every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Speakeasy HQ is Melbourne's only vaudeville theatre and wine bar with cabaret, boylesque, burlesque, circus, sideshow, magic and illusion, jazz, song, comedy and more.

Speakeasy HQ presents weekly vaudeville extravaganzas Friday and Saturday nights spanning the performing arts from contemporary to vintage inspired acts from Australia's underground galaxy of stars. Roy Maloy is your ringmaster oozing vaudevillian charm as he introduces the line-up of incredible performers. And this kid can sing too.

Thursday nights from 7pm is Melbourne Comedy HQ at Speakeasy HQ wrangled by hilarious bawdy dame extraordinaire, Nicky Barry. Each week there is a fresh bill of high calibre local and international stand up comedians and musical comedy acts, including some of the funniest mouths south of the border.

Oh yeah, it is also the home of the 'Slingshot' cocktail shooter. So giddy up and let them entertain you!

Speakeasy HQ hosts live shows weekly:
Thursday – Melbourne Comedy HQ (Acts galore)
Friday – Downtown Vaudeville (6 Acts) followed by a review by the burly babes of Burlesque Nation.
Saturday – Vaudeville Cavalcade (15 Acts)
