The Comedy Theatre Melbourne, Seating Plan & Shows

This theatre is one of the oldest venues in Melbourne, having been established in 1928. As Melbourne was a primary Europeans back in the day, you’ll notice a lot of European flavours and influences in the architecture of the Comedy Theatre.

First, you’ll see a completely European themed exterior that resembles a Florentine palace, with the unique interiors showcasing influences of Spanish architecture. Even after so many years, the Comedy Theatre still has its original structure and interior design. When you enter, you’ll see beautiful Spanish interiors with a European style balcony seating, foyer and an elegant staircase with carpets.

Popular shows that have been hosted here include Menopause the Musical, Waiting for Godot, Avenue Q, The Rocky the Horror Picture Show and Rock of Ages.

Apart from its renowned list of full comedic productions, the theatre also hosts a range of live entertainment and stand up comedy shows.

Seating plans will vary based on the type and size of each event, but here is an example of a past event held at the Comedy Theatre in Melbourne.

    • Hi Lynette,

      There seems to be no exact finishing times listed on their website, but their Facebook page has events listed as 7pm – 9:40pm.

      The Ticketmaster website was the show running for 100 mins, and since the event starts at 7pm, there must be an intermission in the middle to at least push things past 9pm.

      Sorry i couldn’t give an exact answer, but my guess is between 9pm – 9:30pm.
