Welcome to Sweden’s funniest festival
Lund Comedy Festival is Sweden’s funniest festival held yearly since 2010 during three intense days in August/September. With generous support from the municipality of Lund and collaborators such as Sparbanken Skåne, Wihlborgs Fastigheter, Grand Hotel and many more + around hundred volunteers, we strive to make the world a happier and better place through optimism, humor and comedy.
At Lund Comedy Festival you’ll experience everything from standup to improvisation, music, show, interviews and a lot more. The festival presents many of Sweden’s most well known comedy profiles and brilliant international artists, but also rising stars in Sweden’s biggest standup competition – Grand Comedy Slam. The broad repertoire wouldn’t be possible without our loyal sponsors and collaborators who appreciate the positive meeting place that the festival creates for participants, inhabitants, artists and tourists. Our aim is to contribute with a true positive meeting place that brings together perspectives, people and thoughts, not just for the moment, since in the long run for a better world.
