Melbourne International Comedy Festival presents


Proudly supporting Oxfam

It’s time for Australia’s ultimate comedy cavalcade, the golden night of gags, the funniest fiesta… The Gala! The laughs will ring out live at the Regent Theatre on Wednesday 22 March 2017.

The Gala is your first taste of the Festival and our biggest night on the comedy calendar, where the finest and funniest from Australia and overseas take to the stage. Artists donate their time for this super-sized special event, and through the generosity of those on stage and those in the audience, The Gala supports the life-changing work of Oxfam worldwide.

Join in on the laughs! Buy a Gala ticket and support Oxfam – changing the world by helping people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive.



Every year The Gala for Oxfam is our most popular event with tickets selling out in less than 24 hours. Unfortunately, this popularity has led to the event becoming a prime target for ticket scalpers. 

Scalpers purchase affordable tickets in bulk and profit from reselling these tickets at grossly inflated prices that have not been authorised by the performers or producers of the event. Genuine fans then miss out on affordable access to shows.

Ticketmaster is the only authorised ticket seller for this event. In an effort to stop scalpers we will ask the ticket purchaser to present photo ID on arrival at The Gala. We reserve the right to deny entry if your ID doesn’t match the name on the tickets, or if your ticket has been purchased from an unauthorised ticket seller.

Please remember – your whole group will need to enter the theatre together. As the cardholder, you're the important one! Your guests will need to arrive with you.

We are committed to everyone having access to Melbourne International Comedy Festival tickets. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation, and enjoy The Gala!

Please note, there is a print delay on tickets until 1 March 2017.
