Five family-friendly shows to check out at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2018.

Let's forget Easter for a minute and celebrate the fun loving comedy festival hitting Melbourne at the end of the month!

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF) will open on 28 March and run through until the 22 April 2018.

Now in its 31st year, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is the third largest comedy festival in the world, bringing together comical talent from all over the globe to entertain Victorians of all ages.

Yes that's right, Melbourne's much-loved comedy festival is not just for the grown-ups. Far from it when there are two pages of family friendly comedy shows to browse through on MICF's website.

Narrowing it down to a few favourites, we've listed five comedy shows for kids that are on our radar during this year's Melbourne International Comedy Festival:

You'll Never Guess Where I Hid the Cheese
