About Waverley Care Comedy Gala

2019 marks the 13th year of partnership between Off The Kerb Productions and Waverley Care, Scotland's biggest charity providing care and support to those living with HIV and hepatitis C.

Two of comedy’s hottest properties, Josh Widdicombe and Joel Dommett take up hosting duties this year and will joined by a supreme line up of comedy talent – once again making this one of the biggest and best nights of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Special guests confirmed include Dara O Briain, Jon Richardson, Suzi Ruffell, Marlon Davis, Jamali Maddix, Susie McCabe, Rosie Jones, Christopher Macarthur-Boyd, Nigel Ng with more to be announced.

All proceeds raised from the Edinburgh Comedy Gala go straight to supporting the life-changing work of the charity. Since its launch in 2003, the now annual event has raised almost £475,000, with this year's event looking set to topple the £500,000 mark, helping to make a positive difference.


While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Waverley Care Comedy Gala are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
