QVWC for Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2024

Comedy Festival at Queen Vic Womens Centre

Melbourne’s iconic Queen Victoria Women’s Centre (QVWC) will play host to this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) with a curated line-up of stand-out Feminist comics.

The program includes:

UK comedian Kate Dolan with A Different Kind of Unhinged (pictured main second) a show that explores the bizarre expectations put on women, the refreshing perspective that grief can bring and how accepting yourself is harder than your Nan's nipples in the winter.



Lana Walters brings her show Big Mum Energy from the New Zealand comedy scene to unpack the first year of parenthood, all the way from overly ambitious birth plans to nappy changes that feel like crocodile death rolls.


Endhoe from Anna Dooley is an award-winning show where Endo just got promoted to CEO of Dooley's body. She's hard-working, cunning, enticing and a “team-player”. But with the rise to the top, so comes the judgement and belittling from the rest of the world.

Laugh your heart out to a besharam (shameless) different line-up of Indian, Pakistani and South Asian comedians each night bringing you Brown Women Comedy (main pictured). No topic is too taboo. From growing up brown in Australia to getting divorced and disowned thrice, these women won’t be holding back. 



The newest work by Gemma Caruana, recently branded as “the new face and brain of modern cabaret” by Theatre Matters, Galah Galah features hilarious and heart-wrenching stories that every high-achiever-perfectionist-anxiety-ridden-eldest-sister type will find scarily familiar. 

Award-winning music comedy duo show GRIEF-SEX-RACE  (pictured main fourth) is coming to MICF, brought to you by stand-up comedian Jess Karamjeet (NZ Comedy Trust's One To Watch) and singer songwriter Sophie Gibson.



Ever got all glammed up and ended up in a Nandos listening to how indoor rock climbing changed a 26-year-old finance bro’s life? NZ comedians and hot messes Liv McKenzie and Becky Umbers might not have their shit together, but their jokes are definitely worth shaving for in Can't Believe I Shaved For This.
