Comedy Fortress Festival is an international stand-up comedy festival on the open-air stage of medieval Fortress Barone in the renaissance Croatian town of Šibenik. Audiences and comedians can expect the full package – a comedy festival with great shows, excited audiences, and stunning views. Adriatic summer at its finest.


Festival headliner is the great Dylan Moran (Black Books, Shaun of the Dead) who is bringing to the Adriatic shore his latest and highly acclaimed show, Doctor Cosmos. Moran’s fellow Irishman, Jimeoin, currently settled in Australia, will be escaping Melbourne’s winter and stopping by to laugh with us in Šibenik to kick off his European gigs. One of the festival nights will be hosted by SOHO Theatre with an incredible lineup consisting of stars such as Shappi Khorsandi (Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats), Nish Kumar (The Mash Report) and 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival winner, kiwi comedienne Rose Matafeo (Funny Girls). Joining them is the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer nominee, Russian comedienne Olga Koch.

Other guests include English comedian Kai Humphries and Kiwi comedian Javier Jarquin with his popular card-trick-with-comedy show, Card Ninja.

And last, but certainly not least, two comics from the region are going to be lending their talents to the festival – Croatian Vlatko Štampar, and Nikola Silić from Belgrade.

Now, that’s what we call a line-up!
