Queer guide to the Comedy Festival

Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017

We've put together an unofficial Queer guide to the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival: shows that are queer-themed, where the performers or creatives are queer, or where they've appeared in past Midsumma Festivals. Apologies to any shows that we've overlooked - if you're aware of any that should be on our list, please let us know by emailing webdude@midsumma.org.au.
