Comedy Club

Pleasance Courtyard

Perhaps best known during the festival for its huge Fringe programme, Edinburgh University's Pleasance complex of theatres and rehearsal spaces re-opened following a £6 million refurbishment in November 2017. Situated around a cobbled courtyard, there are a number of purpose-built performance spaces in 100 to 220 year-old buildings.

The Edinburgh University hub is a key venue year-round for students and for public events (such as the Edinburgh International Film Festival), debates, and the cabaret bar hosts weekly comedy acts and live music.
