All too often Scottish comedians seem to be forgotten during the world’s biggest arts festival, which is odd, seeing as it takes place every August in – yes, you guessed it – Scotland.
So for the last six years the Scottish Comedy Festival has been providing a Fringe venue dedicated to highlighting the talent that entertains Scottish audiences all year round, and in 2018, after teaming up with Edinburgh-based brewers Innis & Gunn, they’re proud to present their most extensive line-up to date.
Whether you’re looking for award-winning solo acts, compilation shows, highly-tuned stand-up or off-the-wall improvisation, this year’s Scottish Comedy Festival line-up has it all.
From icons of the Scottish comedy circuit to acts making their Fringe debut, with over 500 performances spread across 26 days, there’s something for everyone.
