It’s that time of year again! October’s coming and Leith Comedy Festival is taking over The Biscuit Factory in Leith, bringing you more laughter from Scotland’s finest comedians.


First up, we are delighted to introduce Leith-based 2022 Fringe Legend Robin Grainger. He went from an audience of one to selling packed out rooms after a chain of coincidences. He has supported Kevin Bridges on tour and is described as ‘dazzlingly funny' by Larry Dean.


For the main act, we are delighted to present multi-award winning comedian, writer, podcaster and film-maker Josie Long. She finds the funny in unexpected places and just makes everything better. As seen on Celebrity Masterchef and Live from the BBC. ‘Stunning, riotously hilarious’ Skinny


Your host for the evening is Susan Riddell, whose BBC Short Stuff sketches have been viewed 3 million times. As seen on Scot Squad and Breaking the News. ‘Rising star’ List


‘You can guarantee the night will host a fantastic mix of top class comedians’ STV


Age 16+ due to venue licensing, swearing and adult themes.

The last few shows have sold out so early booking is recommended.
