Faulty Towers the Dining Experience

Faulty Towers the Dining Experience Melbourne

Back for its 14th Melbourne International Comedy Festival in a row, this one-of-a-kind experience invites audiences to climb inside their favourite TV show and experience it from the inside out!

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is the world’s longest running and most successful tribute to the BBC sitcom, and it's returning to Stamford Plaza Hotel for the 2020 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Sybil rules, Basil’s been duped and Manuel is on the loose – and they're all crazier than ever, serving three-course meals and two hours of laughs in a five-star show where anything can happen… and usually does! With over 70% of the show improvised, it’s a night – or lunchtime – that spells chaos, comedy and action at every turn.

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is an affectionate homage to Fawlty Towers, the BBC TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. Their original TV scripts are not used in Faulty Towers The Dining Experience; Faulty Towers The Dining Experience uses its own original script and format.

The show’s residency in London’s West End has been topping the bill since 2012 and holds TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for five years running.
