Despite every possible obstacle the world could throw at us, this August the Scottish Comedy Festival returns for a 9th consecutive Edinburgh Fringe! And as the Fringe itself rebuilds, we’ve doubled down on our commitment to ensure there’s still a home at the World's Biggest Arts Festival for acts based right here in Scotland, because when the Fringe stops, we don’t.

Whether you’re looking for award winning solo acts, compilation shows, highly tuned stand-up or off the cuff wit, a refined panel show or late night anarchy, our comeback Scottish Comedy Festival lineup has it all.

Of course if that’s all too much and you just can’t make up your mind, you can always let us do the choosing for you with our flagship compilation show ‘Scotland’s Pick of the Fringe’.

What’s more, to help ensure the safety of our audience members in the current climate, for the first time ever ALL shows will be offering the opportunity to reserve your seat in advance by purchasing a ticket via edfringe.com, with remaining seats still available on the day under the budget friendly ‘Pay What You Want’ system.

The 2021 Scottish Comedy Festival, Now With Extra Scottish!..... Okay a couple of Irish Acts as well…. Just nobody mentioned the New Zealander….

Now let's go have a Laugh!

Always true to the spirit of the fringe, the SCF continues to be Run By Acts, For Acts. We would like to thank the Fringe Society Artist and Venue recovery fund for helping offset the costs of relaunching our venue.
