Hello there.

The Butterfly Club is a small theatre in the heart of Melbourne. We have plenty of shows, award-winning foyer bars, and an enormous collection of kitsch.


Our Midsumma program is now on sale, with some seriously terrific queer work taking over our showrooms in Jan/Feb.

Featuring a rainbow of content (aaaah see we are very clever) spanning from the hilarious to the heartbreaking, take a look at everything on offer and choose your favourite bits of queer excellence


MICF 2023

Here at The Butterfly Club we take our funny business very seriously, working hard to curate a mix of the best shows in town. It's a real fun job, but someone has to do it.

Check out our program for the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival!


Producers, we want your shows.

With over 1200 performances every year, we are always on the lookout for new shows. If you are a producer (or self-produced artist) we’d love to hear from you.

With no minimum hire fee, free rehearsals, free front-of-house, free merch sales, and other assorted perks, the Club is a great place to get your work on stage without breaking the bank.
