Standard Comedy Festival 3-day program

Stantar Kkomety in collaboration with Rialto Theatre will be hosting the first three-day stand-up comedy festival, under the artistic direction of Yiorgos Kyriakou.

A three-day event dedicated to the art of stand-up comedy, featuring stand-up shows, music comedies, and performances for all ages. Some of the most prominent stand-up comedians of Cyprus will be introduced for the first time on Rialto’s historic stage in the frame of two performances.

The festival will open on Friday 22nd September 2022, at 20:30 on the specially restructured Heroes’ Square introducing an open-mic contest, followed by a party. The winner of the Open-Mic contest will claim a place in the official three-day program.

Throughout the festival, outdoor canteens will be selling food and drinks.

The festival will culminate with 2 line-up shows taking place inside the Theatre featuring the most established comedians the island has to offer.

The daily festivities will conclude at Sousou bar for drinks, music, and a get-together with the comedians, as well as impromptu open-mic sessions. The three-day events will be wrapped up with a podcast on Rialto’s stage on Sunday 24th of September.

Alongside the shows, the Stand-Up Festival will offer a unique opportunity for the audience to attend free intensive seminars and open discussions with professional stand-up comedians.

The indoor shows and the Open mic contest will be addressed to a 16+ audience, while the Stand-up show at Heroe’s Square on Saturday will be family-friendly.
