The first ever Dubai Comedy Festival has finally come to an end. After a week filled with headlining international acts, spontaneous street performers, local comedy nights, hundreds of punchlines and thousands of laughs the first edition of the festival has been received with open arms, and we can’t wait to welcome it back.
Having personally performed in two shows, Dubai is now more aware that there is a comedy scene that has been, and will continue to, grow across the country. I also had the pleasure of watching the Funny Girls’ show in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness and Emirati ‘King of Comedy’ Ali Al Sayed’s hilarious special ‘Onestly Sbeaking’.
Top international acts Trevor Noah and Dave Chapelle rocked the SkyDive Dubai comedy stage and added their professional class to a festival that truly showed how funny Dubai is and how much we all love to laugh! But the fun doesn’t stop here! There’s plenty of comedy shows EVERY WEEK in Dubai, so I’ll see you again soon.
