    Keep the Comedy Going!

    That’s another fringe over for another year and we had a ball! We hope you found some gems and enjoyed our recommendations. We were particularly excited that Hannah Gadsby and John Robins both won the Edinburgh Comedy Award – big congratulations to both.

    So now what? To stop you getting withdrawal symptoms, we have put together a Punchline Comedy Gala in Edinburgh on 14th October, hosted by critically acclaimed comic Nish Kumar. Click for more information…

Next event announced soon

So far we've had Nish Kumar (8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo), Des Clarke, Nick Helm (BBC’s Uncle and C4’s Loaded), Charlie Baker (Let’s Dance for Comic Relief), Josh Widdicombe (The Last Leg), Roisin Conaty (E4’s Gameface, BBC’s Have I Got News for You), Ivan Brackenbury (BBC’s Hospital People) and Frankie Boyle. Who would you like to see next?

Defining a generation of new classic comedy, Punchline brings you the rising stars in the UK just before they become household names.
