A masterclass of local and international comedy in Perth
Prepare to laugh those winter socks off as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow comes to Perth for a three-day bonanza of belly laughs, giggles and downright politically incorrect banter.
The Roadshow will hit His Majesty's Theatre in Perth from Thursday, 22nd June to Saturday, 24th June and will feature a hilarious combination of witty newcomers, home-grown favourites and international comedians.

From Australian favourites Bob Franklin and Gillian Cosgriff to New Zealand's Guy Montgomery, the UK's Adam Hess and Venezuelan Ivan Aristeguieta, these comedians don't just dabble in stand up – there's slapstick, sketch and song to get the laughs going.
The Roadshow has been travelling throughout regional WA since late May, with shows in Carnarvon, South Hedland and Kununnura still to come before the Perth show. There are different line-ups for the regional centres, so be sure to check the Melbourne Comedy Festival website for dates and times.

If you need a good laugh and a top quality night out, this is one roadshow to put on the to-do list. If you have kids, it's best to leave them at home for this one, as there will be some coarse language (comedians tend to swear.)
To book, see the Ticketek website and get your lungs ready to belt out those laughs.
