Welcome to Monkey Barrel Comedy, the home of alternative comedy right in the heart of Edinburgh!
Bringing fresh comedy 7 nights a week, the three times winner of Best Venue at the Scottish Comedy Awards (2016-2018) endeavours to bring the funny to your trip to the Scottish capital. Riding high after several successful years at the Fringe, Monkey Barrel is certainly a name worth remembering.
