From April 12th to 21st, some of the world’s most renowned comedians will tickle your funny bone across various iconic venues in Dubai, including the prestigious Dubai Opera and the electrifying Coca-Cola Arena.

Dubai Comedy Festival

This year promises to be the biggest and most diverse edition yet, with a stellar line-up catering to a global audience. While there was a last-minute change with Frank Skinner pulling out of the Dubai Comedy Festival, organizers quickly filled the gap with the ever-popular Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan, who will now grace the opening night at the Dubai Opera.

The Dubai Comedy Festival extends beyond the main stage, offering a platform for rising stars from the Egyptian, Emirati, and South African comedy scenes at Roxy Cinemas in Dubai Hills Mall.

International Comedy Legends

For fans of established comedic talent, the festival boasts some heavy hitters. British audiences will be thrilled to see Al Murray, a regular face on UK television, take the stage at the Dubai Opera Hall.

Gad Elmaleh, dubbed the “Seinfeld of France,” will open the festival with a double dose of French-language humor, sure to resonate with the French-speaking community in Dubai. He also boasts a successful career in the American market, performing stand-up routines in fluent English.

Global Stars Take the Stage

Canadian comic Katherine Ryan, known for her Netflix specials and appearances on popular UK panel shows, brings her global following to Dubai. Indian audiences can look forward to viral sensation Anubhav Singh Bassi, known as Bassi, who will showcase his new show “Kisi Ko Batana Mat” (Don’t Tell Anyone).

The festival also features a strong American presence with comedians Chris Distefano and Amer Zahr, alongside British stand-up sensation Mo Gilligan and the popular podcasting duo Spencer & Vogue.
