What you'll do

The Mountebank Comedy Walk is Edinburgh's only comedy walking tour and the only tour of Edinburgh led by a professional, local, stand-up comedian. This is a walking tour that is 'hysterical' and 'historical' you will laugh a lot and you might just learn a little..!! On this walk around Edinburgh's Old Town I will tell you everything you need to know about Edinburgh, Scotland, and possibly a little you probably didn't want to know about me! You'll learn some of my other favourite Scottish words, hear stories about great Scottish swashbuckling heroes from William Wallace to Susan Boyle, I'll tell you about our national drink (irn-bru) you'll find out about buckie, shortbread, jobbies, boabies, midgies, Burn's, unicorns, deep fried mars bars and of course the bloody weather! Come ready to laugh your wee socks off and mind and bring your best banter :) (PLEASE NOTE: this is a comedy tour aimed at adults with some adult themes and jokes. I’m Scottish so I’ll almost certainly swear too much as well..!! Suitable for ages 16+) (PLEASE NOTE: I have a thick Scottish accent and use Scottish words, fluent English is necessary to enjoy the tour) (PLEASE NOTE: no liability is accepted for those visitors who die laughing)

Daniel

I'm Daniel an Edinburgh based comedian and your guide for my Comedy Walk of Edinburgh (SUITABLE FOR AGES 16+). I am a professional stand up comedian and the majority of my material is inspired by Scottish history, Scottish people, Scottish language, Scottish culture, Scottish weather - all things Scottish basically! The tour aims to showcase Edinburgh's best historical characters and stories, you'll learn a little but more importantly you'll laugh a lot! This is an adult tour there are adult themes and some bad language I have a thick Scottish accent an use Scottish words so if you do not have fluent English then this probably isn't the tour for you. The Mountebank Comedy Walk is Edinburgh's only comedy walking tour and the only city tour led by a professional, local, stand-up comedian, so come ready to laugh and bring your best banter!
