Ironically, Big Night In is a relatively small night out.

Nestled in the new Southside Classic, Big Night In is an inclusive showcase of Melbourne’s wonderfully hilarious and diverse comedy scene.

Stuff yourself with an extravaganza of outrageous, experimental and belly-ache-inducing works. With no boundaries in form, this cruise ship buffet of comedy has a little bit of everything.

No two show will be alike as we swing from style to style — from stand-up to troupes of dark and absurdist sketches. Lets get experimental, baby.

Our irregular show has a regular time slot. Not full yet? Catch ya at our third show on 5th of Feb!

On the Fence Theatre is a youth and inclusivity focused theatre company. Originating in a share-house backyard, On the Fence Theatre ensures accessible spaces for artist and audience alike, keeping ticket prices low and performers paid.


In the Classic Southside Room at Classic Cinema, Elsternwick.

Classic Cinema is wheelchair accessible. For those who need it, there is an elevator inside the cinema that leads into Classic Southside. 

This is a safe space. No racism, homophobia, transphobia, classist, ableist attitudes, fatphobia or other violent behaviour will be tolerated.


South of the City is a social enterprise focused on activating creative spaces on the south side with music, art and film. Run by a network of young people – musicians, artists, filmmakers and dancers – we’re invested in supporting, promoting and putting on arts events closer to home.


We would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri People and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which this event is taking place. We pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded.
