What you'll do

Edinburgh's hysterical, historical, and completely original Mountebank Comedy Walk is back and we are all in desperate need of a laugh now more than ever! Come and laugh off the pandemic on the only tour of Edinburgh that is led by a local, professional, stand-up comedian guaranteed to make you laugh yourself silly! The aim is simple, to make you laugh a lot while you learn about Scotland's incredible capital.

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!

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 and swears are just punctuation marks here.. Suitable for ages 16+)

(PLEASE NOTE: I have a Scottish accent and use Scottish words on the tour, so fluent English is necessary to enjoy the tour fully)

(PLEASE NOTE: I sometimes have to take my mega friendly dog Brahan aka 'The Bonnie Prince' on the tour, he is the softest, friendliest dog in Scotland but if you have any issues with dogs and would rather he wasn't on your tour please let me know)

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 and use Scottish words so if you don't 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!

Laughed my head off the entire time. Daniel is a great host - warm, personable, knowledgeable and very funny. Was impressed he took the time to memorise everyone’s names, where they’re from and what they do, which must be no mean feat. Learnt something about Edinburgh and had a giggle - would highly recommend for anyone visiting the city.

I've lived in and around Edinburgh for many years and still learned lots of new facts and stories from this tour! Lots of British-culture jokes which Daniel personilised based on the different members of the group! That made it so funny and special experience. Great afternoon, didn't think about the time at all which I usually do on tours!

Amazing tour of Edinburgh. I learned a lot, but also my cheeks hurt from laughing, and that is definitely worth going on the tour alone. Daniel made the tour personal and made sure you had a good time. Couldn’t recommend enough!

Utterly hilarious... Would definitely recommend! Daniel has a lovely way of involving everyone, and secretly getting us to learn a bit of Scottish history behind plenty of jokes!

A walking tour you won’t forget that is the perfect mix of humour and history! Daniel is extremely personable and involves everybody in the fun. Highly recommend!

Daniel was a fabulous factual storytelling guide, whilst throwing in many (possibly 17) jokes, we passed many other tours and ours was the only one laughing ….. a lot. He has a passion for history and comedy, which is fortunate for us. We also couldn’t help notice that Dan was also the best dressed tour guide! Good laddie.
