5 - 15 October 2017


We are delighted to present Aberdeen Comedy Festival 2017!

Now in its second year, the festival boasts over 55 events across 11 days in 27 different venues. We have something for everyone, including multi-bill shows, solo shows, improvisation comedy, kids events, comedy films and workshops. We have an impressive collection of international, national and local comics lined up to make you laugh including Canadian Craig Campbell and the returning Fred MacAulay.

The Aberdeen Comedy Festival is just one of Aberdeen Inspired’s many projects, designed to make Aberdeen city centre one of the most vibrant, attractive and liveable cities in Scotland. Recent winners of the EU BID of the Year Award in Berlin, we are committed to seeing the city grow and prosper over the coming years and beyond. However, this could not be achieved without our valued sponsor and partners who we thank for their continued support and enthusiasm.

We hope you enjoy the comedy on offer, with ticket prices from as little as £5 and several shows a day there’s no excuse not to
come out and support your local comedy festival!

Special thanks to

The festival is presented by Aberdeen Inspired in partnership with Breakneck Comedy and is kindly sponsored by McGinty’s Meal An’ Ale.
