Lund Comedy Festival is Sweden’s largest comedy festival held during a weekend in August/September every year in Lund (in the south of Sweden).
The idea is to create a generous, warm and vibrant meetin place based on humour in every sense of the word. The festival presents established comedians as well as new talents from both Sweden and abroad, and also aims to give the comedy industry an opportunity for an annual get together.
Lund Comedy Festival is a non-commercial event, all profit being used to fund future festivals. Generous sponsors support the festival financially, with their knowledge and with equipment.
The first ever Lund Comedy Festival was held in 2010. It was initiated and founded by Johan Wester and Anders Jansson who are comedians, writers, producers and also founders of the production company Anagram, based in Lund.
Since then, Lund Comedy Festival has been successfully arranged in 2011 and 2012. The forth edition will be held in August 28-31 2013.
