News & Updates
After the smash that was our inaugural year in 2012, we’re back for 2013 bigger and better!
Comedy has exploded in Scotland in the last few years, with an eclectic and diverse circuit developing at a rate of knots, filled with great nights and raw talent.
That’s what made last year’s Scottish Comedy Festival such a success and it’s what makes this year’s so promising. Once again, the stunningly supportive Beehive Inn, home of the year-round Beehive Comedy Club, is our dedicated showcase venue, in association with our brilliant sponsors Caledonian Brewery.
Building on last year, the SCF has two strong aims: to bring the comedic talent working in the north of the UK to wider national and international attention; and to really make some noise and promote the circuit's nights, clubs, and comedians for the rest of the year - because when the Fringe stops, we don't!
The Scottish Comedy Festival’s second year will see over 50 comedians, from the very brightest established acts to the most promising up-and-comers, present over 20 different shows over 28 days and 2 rooms. We're shaping up to be offering one of the best programmes at the Fringe, with our heady mix of stand-up shows and sketch and character shows, solo shows and multi-bills, lunchtime hi-jinks and late night revelry, amazing full-runs and not-to-be-missed one-offs. There's something at the SCF for every comedy taste!
Like last year, taking the lead from organisations like PBH's Free Fringe and The Laughing Horse Free Festival, we're offering entry to some of our wonderful shows for absolutely FREE, with the audience encouraged to make a fair donation in the bucket afterwards if they've enjoyed themselves.
New this year, some shows have admission charges. But don’t worry, no ticket price is bank-busting – and what you’ll be getting is undisputed quality! You can get tickets for these shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival box office, or at The Beehive Inn itself in the hour before the particular performance.
Thank you for perusing this brochure. We hope to see you at some point! This Fringe 2013, support the Scottish Comedy Festival!
