Monkey Barrel Comedy
About Monkey Barrel Comedy
Monkey Barrel Comedy brings you a premier bill of top laughs in the heart of Edinburgh.
After five sell out years housed at the famous Beehive Inn on Grassmarket, picking up two Scottish Comedy Awards along the way*, Monkey Barrel Comedy has moved to its very own permanent venue, dead centre of the city, at 9 Blair Street, just off the Royal Mile.
Having bought up the lease of an old Victorian printers shop, the Monkey Barrel team – comedians Ben Verth and Chris Griffin, writer and cartoonist John Millar, and comedy fan David Bleese – have transformed the shell into a two-level theatre, café and bar space, with a 100 capacity main room and an intimate 60 seater basement theatre The Banana Skin.
Monkey Barrel will also be offering a range of comedy courses throughout the year, run by seasoned comedy veteran and one of the most in-demand acts in Scotland, Jojo Sutherland.
