Leith Comedy Festival Presents Christopher Macarthur-Boyd, Amy Matthews and Billy Kirkwood

Leith Comedy Festival is taking over The Biscuit Factory, bringing laughter from a trio of Scotland’s comedians.


Rosalind Romer, Director of Leith Comedy Festival, said; “I can’t express how much I have missed live comedy, and how amazing it feels to be booking gigs again. This is the first time Leith Comedy Festival has been in a position to do a live indoor comedy show and we can’t wait to share some laughs with you!” 


First up, we have Amy Matthews, a bright new comedian who’s going places. Award winner and one of The List's ‘HOT 100’, she explores the absurdity of modern life with zest. ‘Her star feels very much in the ascendant’ The Wee Review


For the main act, we are thrilled to present Christopher Macarthur-Boyd (pictured), a firm favourite and rising star on the Scottish comedy circuit and beyond. Bursting with energy and good vibes, catch him now before he becomes a household name. ‘On the cusp of something big, and you don't want to miss it’ Daily Record


Host for this evening of laughter will be the turbo charged Billy Kirkwood, triple Scottish Comedy Award winner. ‘Effortlessly funny, something for everyone’ Metro


“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Leith Comedy Festival to our lovely venue in the heart of Leith. The past 18 months has highlighted the need for community spirit and collaboration more than ever. And we are all more than ready for a good laugh together. We cannot wait to continue working together with the fantastic people at Leith Comedy Festival” said Fiona Hamilton, Managing Director at The Biscuit Factory.


We are also delighted to announce a new partnership with Fife College, who will be setting up and operating all technical elements for our evening of comedy.


Matt Easson, Lighting and Sound Lecturer at Fife College, “At Fife College we take a pride in our students being able to work in their chosen career. It is very exciting to establish a link between Leith Comedy Festival and Fife College. This will allow the students to gain valuable experience in the world of performance and live events within interesting venues that they would possibly have not otherwise gained. This then brings the opportunity to work alongside industry professionals to develop their skills and knowledge.”
