Welcome to
Leith Comedy Festival

Brought to you by Punchline

Leith Comedy Festival is created for Leithers by Leithers, and everyone is welcome.


Due to you-know-what, we weren't able to have the all-singing all-dancing launch we had planned, but until then, we are working with incredible Leithers and local organisations to bring you events, live and online.

Celebrate laughter, celebrate Leith. Unofficially twinned with Rio de Janeiro, Leith has a lust for life and a sparkling sense of humour. Leith Comedy Festival celebrates and inspires creativity and connection through laughter. Leithers have a strong sense of community and our humour is second to none. Set in a bustling historic port town where anything can happen, this isn’t your ordinary comedy festival…

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
