Lund Comedy Festival
This years dates: 31 August–2 September 2017
The funniest festival of all. In seven years, the Lund Comedy Festival has become the biggest celebration of humour not only in Sweden, but probably in the whole Nordic region. Nearly 150 performers contribute each year. A cavalcade of Sweden’s most beloved stars, combined with new talents and several international comedians. Many make this their premiere; others try out new material and still others perform tailored versions of their regular shows. And all of them have one thing in common: they love to come back to Lund – not least because of the fabulous audience they find here.
Many partners and sponsors make the festival possible, including Sparbanken Skåne, the municipality of Lund, Wihlborgs, Grand Hotel and more.
