The Glasgow International Comedy Festival, the largest event of its kind in Europe, has become a renowned annual event in Glasgow's cultural calendar.

The annual festival features your favourite comedy friends, top television names and spectacular stand-up stars to stages across Glasgow.

Top comedy stars from around the UK and beyond will be coming just to entertain you, only to realise the Scottish money they’ve been paid in can only be spent in this country and that they can never go home again... They’ll be complemented by the very best of home-grown Scottish talent for a comedy extravaganza that makes us Europe’s largest comedy festival.
