In the interest of the health and safety of our audiences and artists, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the temporary closure of The Burrow from Tuesday March 17 – Sunday April 19.

We are devastated by the need to make this decision, however we feel an obligation to our community to act with a social conscience, and play our part to slow the transmission of COVID-19 by limiting all non-essential gatherings and contact.



The temporary closure of The Burrow means the cancellation of all remaining performances of Slut, as well as all performances programmed as part of our Melbourne International Comedy Festival season.

We are disappointed and grateful for the support of the amazing creative teams behind Slut, One Small Trip, Man v Dog, The Bikram Blogs, Dark Web Mystery Box, Perhaps Next Time, Sit on my Face and Super Relatable Content, who have each invested an incredible amount of time, energy and skill to bring these works to life.

The decision to cancel a show is not an easy one, and the current situation has been and will continue to be the cause of financial stress for independent artists and venues, with the cancellation of events and gatherings across the country.

Ticket holders booked to attend performances and events at The Burrow over this period will be contacted and refunds offered. However we ask that if you’re in a position to do so, you consider donating the cost of your ticket to ensure that the artists can continue to create in these challenging times and to allow the doors of The Burrow to reopen when it is safe to do so.

If you are not in a position to donate the cost of your ticket at this time, we will gladly refund it. Contact us via to organise your refund.


We recommend keeping up-to-date and following advice from the Australian Government Department of Health, particularly regarding isolation protocol. Go on, play your part.


Stay safe. Be patient. Be gentle. Be kind. We'll see you on the other side.
