Glasgow International Comedy Festival – TICKETS ON SALE

As Charles Dickens once said, “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour”. And, whilst we are on the subject of laughter, did you know that tickets for the Glasgow International Comedy Festival 2022 are now on sale?

Yes, it’s finally back and we are so excited at the Kelvingrove Hotel, Glasgow. Taking place from March 8th to 15th, 2022, you can expect a memorable few days of nonstop gags, laughter, banter, and smiles that are so welcome after the uncertainty of the last two years!

This year’s festival organisers have worked day and night to bring us the best of comic talent from around the World, and of course showcase our own Scottish favourites to make sure you can celebrate the party of parties this March in Glasgow.

Each year the Glasgow International Comedy Festival now (sponsored by Whyte & Mackay) has become bigger and bigger and in in 2019 a staggering 54 venues hosted over 525 shows.
