I am a lover of live comedy, engrossing films, scenic hikes, social enterprises, delicious food and unique experiences. I write about the many ways people can give back to causes they care about here: thethriftyphilanthropist.com

The best laughs in life are free
Did you know that you can enjoy FREE live comedy in Melbourne most nights of the week? Often featuring up and coming comedians on the scene honing their skills, you can be one of those people that brag about how they saw the superstars of tomorrow before they made it big.
There are quite often drop-in special guests that grace these small stages, wanting to try out new material on a live audience. Venues can't promote these type of headline acts so it's always a rewarding surprise for punters.
It's important to note that while entry is free, donations are accepted and encouraged. There are often great happy hour and meal deals available at the venues so why not grab a drink and a bite to eat and make a night out of it?
Full up-to-date gig and comedy room listings including purely open mic nights and shows with paid entry can be found at Squirrel Comedy along with reviews and the latest news on Melbourne's thriving comedy scene.
You can follow the room's Facebook pages so you can keep up to date with the line up for each show and get alerted when special guests will be appearing.
