Comedy Circuit

Comedy Circuit is Back!

The Summer might be coming to an end but there’s no love lost when we have an exciting new Autumn programme of Comedy Circuit on the horizon!

We’ve pinched some of the best comedians from this year’s Edinburgh Fringe and we’re heading back to Inverness for another bout of electrifying comedy at Eden Court.
