Event Details

Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Cast of legends. Supper available

PANTS ON FIRE live onstage at Andrew Kay’s brand new venue Brunswick Ballroom.

Two teams of well known showbiz types from comedy, television, film, music and more; compete to see who is the greatest bullshit artist of them all.

Pants on Fire is a live onstage panel game, which started as a way to stay sane during lockdown and now explodes live onstage.

Host Karen Davitt (Blue Heelers, Skirts, All Day Fritz) is joined every Wednesday evening (starting March 24) by headliner performers from the Melbourne Comedy Festival and beyond including:

 Jane Clifton, Brian Nankervis, Derek Guille, Dave O Neil, Anna Go-Go, Adam Zwar, Fiona Scott Norman, Russell Fletcher, Rod Quantock, Emily Taheny, Alison Ferrier, Dan Witton, Fahey Younger, Dylan Lewis and more to be announced, not to mention surprise kamikaze guests from the audience itself. 


We guarantee that truth can be stranger than fiction and that behind the scenes can lurk the most surprising comedy of all.

Each player spins yarns, reveals unusual facts and shares embarrassing personal stories, and it is up to the opposing team and the audience to figure out whose telling the truth and whose pants are on fire. 

The spectacular Brunswick Ballroom on Sydney Road is great place to come for supper, catch some comedy, and mingle at the bar with performers and punters in true comedy festival style.

Show times- Each and every Wednesday night of the comedy festival at 8.30pm (March 24 and 31 and April 7 and 14)
