What about this year’s festival?

Organizers said they were delighted to bring the festival back after last year’s “resounding success”.

“The festival was founded last summer between shutdowns and was a smash hit and the culmination of last year’s comedy shows,” they said.

“The first event sold out within hours and turned out to be a sunny evening packed with award-winning comedies from some of Scotland’s finest comics.”

Organizers added that Laugh In the Park plans to be “a permanent fixture on the calendar as a celebration of Scotland’s wealth of comedy talent”.

They said: “Our lineup features seven of the absolute best performers to be found in Scotland and we promise 2.5 hours of award-winning, mind-bending comedy.”
