Well, you don't need us to tell you what significance Edinburgh has on the world of comedy. The Edinburgh festival has proven itself to be the making or breaking point of a comedians career. Each year thousands descend on the city, providing one of the fullest comedy line ups anywhere in the world. The city was also the birth place of both satirist Rory Bremner and British comic legend Ronnie Corbett, further highlighting its comedic importance.

Venues like The Stand Comedy Club, The Cabaret Bar and Pleasance Courtyard are hubs of comic intrigue, being perhaps the best known ones in the city, but also check out smaller venues like The Tron for cutting edge comic inventiveness. 

The Late Show at the Beehive Inn brings three comedians and a compere to the people of Edinburgh for a late-night intimate comedy show on Fridays and Saturdays for just a tenner. Top Banana at Monkey Barrel Comedy is, despite multiple awards, a cheap comedy night in Edinburgh with tickets for just £4. The show showcases the newest faces in the comedy circuit and allows established comics to perform their new material. 

Edinburgh’s stand up comedy scene is unmatched thanks to the liveliness of the city, its cracking venues, and the brilliant sense of humour the locals have. If you’ve been seeking a good night, attending some Edinburgh stand up comedy nights might be the best decision you ever make
