Joke for Scope is back and it's bigger and better than ever!

This year we are coming to Manchester, London and Edinburgh, bringing with us an incredible and hilarious night of stand up that will have you in stitches. Featuring a line-up of disabled and non disabled comedians, nothing is off limits!

We've had unbelievable talent at previous events, some of the biggest names in comedy including Richard Herring, Russell Howard, Adam Hills and Rosie Jones, and this year we are going bigger.

Find out more about our Manchester event below and watch this space for announcements about our London and Edinburgh gigs later this year!

That was incredible, we'll definitely come back.

Why support Joke for Scope

One in five of us is disabled, but the gap between disabled and non-disabled people is real and it's growing. Disabled people still remain hugely underrepresented in the media, on stage and in the public eye. This means that often, their ambitions, potential and talent goes unrecognised due to negative attitudes. This needs to change.

We know that humour can change attitides and break down barriers. Our Joke for Scope event series uses comedy to showcase disability and difference in a positive way. If you share our vision of equality for disabled people, join us for an evening of comedy, and we can change attitudes together. 

You can do jokes about any subject to bring people together
