The Comedy Underground

Emerging Talent, Blistering Stand-up


The Comedy Underground is a brand new television series for the brand new BBC channel, BBC Scotland.

Piloted on BBC Two, and now a major new series, The Comedy Underground is a stand-up series like another. Similar in that there is a stage, a microphone and some jokes; but wildly different in most other ways.

Dabster Productions have supported new comedy at every stage – from the Edinburgh Fringe to podcasting; Live at the Stand, 4 Extra Stands Up, The Guardian Podcast, Amnesty International… and now we have a new platform to showcase and develop the most exciting new talent that Scotland has to offer.

Watch this space (and your TV) for debuts from comedians that we know and love; comedians that surprise live audiences across the country every weekend; comedians that are part of The Comedy Underground.
