Inspired by the 'Free Fringe' that has revolutionised the famous Edinburgh Fringe.

'59 Free Comedy' has been a fixture of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the past 6 years at Station 59 in Richmond.

"Just because it's a free show doesn't mean it's no good.

In fact it's far better than many shows I've paid to see" - RHUM
