Our festival of LOLs has launched its biggest program ever!
Ribs still hurting from last year's Comedy Festival? Yep, ours too. Believe it or not, Melbourne's funniest festival is upon us once again, and the organisers have just revealed a record-breaking number of acts. We're talking more than 559 in 145 venues, by over 3,000 funny people.
The MICF website is now live, and all tickets are now on sale. Here are some of our highlights:
