Fred MacAulay and David McCann

The Crieff Comedy Festival is coming back with a bang. Following the success of last years’ inaugural event, the festival will take place on Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July 2019 at various venues throughout the Perthshire town.

David McCann, Manager at Crieff Succeeds said: “This years’ comedy festival includes a broader variety and format of shows than last year, with something for everyone. As it takes place just before the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, it offers something truly unique and a chance to see some Fringe acts early. We look forward to seeing the town buzzing and welcoming guests from far and wide.”

The line-up includes a host of award-winning acts, from solo shows and Fringe previews, to comedy club nights and magic. Throughout the weekend, there will be more than thirty shows on offer including the one and only Fred MacAulay; multi-award-winning Scottish comedienne Janey Godley; TV and radio star, Des Clarke; The Glasgow Trip featuring Des McLean and Gary Little; the comedy, magic, burlesque show ‘Enterteasement’; as well as the comedian, actor and broadcaster Jojo Sutherland; and comedy veteran Phil Differ.  (Even more acts being announced soon)

There will also be a series of dinner shows and free events throughout the weekend so there’s something for everyone.

This year, the festival will take place across four fantastic venues – The Square Bar, Strathearn Artspace, The Tower and Crieff Golf Club.

Crieff Town Hall will also be a key venue for a two-day comedy workshop aimed at budding comedians. The workshop will be hosted by one of the UK’s foremost comedy tutors, Viv Gee, who has been lecturing in stand-up at the University of Strathclyde since 1998.

Tickets are on sale now – many at a reduced launch price, so book early to avoid disappointment. Keep up to date with festival news, acts announcements and special offers on social media:
