Time Out Melbourne

Satisfy your lust for LOLs in between comedy festivals with these much-loved regular comedy nights

Let's Get Funny at the Brunny

While the beer may be cheap ($10 jugs of Boag’s Draught!) the laughs certainly are not. The Brunswick Hotel champions young, up-and-coming talent every second Monday. Brunswick. Free.

Imperial Comedy

The Imperial's lineup reaches high: the likes of Tom Gleeson, Celia Pacquola, Claire Hooper and Tom Ballard have split sides here on a Tuesday night. Catch them in the lead-up to the comedy festival and you might be the first to cheer (or boo) their fresh material. Melbourne. $10.

Comedy at the European Bier Café

Sarah Silverman, Wil Anderson, Jimeoin and Dave Hughes have been known to step up to the mic at this comedy institution. The European Bier Café's weekly nights are only getting stronger, with lineups among the best in Melbourne each Thursday. Melbourne. $12.

The Big HOO-HAA!

Like your comedy a bit more improvised and theatrical? Look no further than Melbourne’s longest-running weekly improv show, in which two teams of comedians battle it out for the weekly championship each Friday at The Butterfly Club. Melbourne. $15-19.

Catfish Comedy

If you know Fitzroy's Catfish, you'll know that this little bar does a mean Philly cheesesteak and they sure know a good craft beer when they see one, but they also run comedy nights every Tuesday. Grab a sanga and pull up a chair, laughs from the best comedic talents in town are guaranteed. Fitzroy. $12.
