Glasgow International Comedy Festival

Glasgow will celebrate the city’s famous sense of humour once again this spring as the Glasgow International Comedy Festival Europe’s premier comedy event returns for its tenth year.

The city will play host to a bumper gathering of some of the world’s most in-demand comedians when the festival rolls into town from 15 March to 1 April 2012 with nearly 100,000 tickets available for more than 300 shows across 40 venues.

Funded by Glasgow City Marketing Bureau and EventScotland, over the last decade the festival has become a city and Scottish institution. Over 600,000 tickets have been sold and more than 2,000 comedians have graced the many stages the festival provides throughout the city over the last ten years.

This year boasts the best programme yet with more big name shows than ever before. The festival’s official tenth anniversary line-up was revealed today unveiling a variety of top stand-up, sketch, music, theatre, TV and film performers from around the world including Sarah Millican and Dara O'Briain.
