Bringing Back a World of Laughs: Dubai Comedy Festival Returns from May 12 to 22

The much-awaited Dubai Comedy Festival is back, returning with endless laughs this May 12th to 22nd for a 11-day city-wide takeover.


Produced by BRAG, Live Nation, and DXBLive and presented by Dubai Calendar, Dubai Comedy Festival will take place across multiple hotspots, including Coca-Cola Arena, The Agenda, The Theater MOE, and more.


After multiple seasons of epic sell-out shows, Dubai Comedy Festival has welcomed some of the planet’s funniest comedians to the emirate of Dubai, including Maz Jobrani, NEMR, Eddie Griffin, Mina Liccione, Vir Das, Gad Elmaleh, Ali Al Sayed, among others. Last year, the comedy extravaganza took over the city by garnering a footfall of more than 8500.


This year, Dubai Comedy Festival takes the heat up by several folds with 11 full days of the world’s funniest individuals unleashing their comic prowess as you fight to catch your breath! It’s time to laugh out loud with your family, friends, and loved ones, as you witness a world-class lineup of multi-lingual stand-up sets, side-splittingly hilarious activations (Comedy Bazaar), and of course, a World of Laughs leading into thesummer.


Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), part of Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET), commented: “After mapping two seasons of massive hits, we are thrilled to welcome Dubai Comedy Festival once again. The festival has continually set the benchmark in the region for offering a stage to some of the best regional as well as global talent bringing a diverse mix of communities together. We look forward to seeing a full house as Dubai being one of the first cities to resume events to full capacity with the safety of all still being a priority, and being the international hub for comedy and entertainment.”


As well as providing a platform for the world’s best in comedy, Dubai Comedy Festival is also proud to present local and regional talents an opportunity to showcase their skills while transcending all cultures, backgrounds, and ages, as good comedy should.


The return of the Dubai Comedy Festival is set to bring the laughs, yet again! Stay tuned for the big reveal of the world-class line-up of comedic talent, coming very soon.
