Stuffing one of the world’s largest comedy festivals into the one show is no easy feat, but the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) has managed to do just that with its Roadshow 2012. The hilarity of this “all killer, no filler” event is hooting its way back to Hong Kong after a SOLD OUT season in 2011!
This year’s Roadshow plans to connect with even more comedy fans and share the kind of humour that’s had Melbourne weeping with laughter. The best of more than 300 shows squeezed into in one – you can’t get better value than that.
