FIC BCN: the multilingual comedy festival
Barcelona Comedy Festival, the only multilingual comedy festival in the world is a Project belonging to ComedyinSpain who created and pioneered the very first professional English language show in Spain back in 2003. FIC BCN ’13 from 26th september to 20 octuber, will continue it’s legendary programming with the biggest names in international comedy.
The programme is a balance of the biggest names in comedy and a platform for the best of what are by now vibrant comedy scenes in both Barcelona and Madrid. Even some really interactive events to try and coax the closet performers out to further boost that scene.In a seemingly endless economic crisis people never needed a lift as bad. Over the years ComedyinSpain established itself as the biggest providers of live comedy products in various languages on the Iberian peninsula presenting 100’s of shows to public, many corporate events, and even programming briefly for Ibiza Rocks and still do for FIBER rock festival in Benicassim.
While the domains have been registered since 2003 it wasn´t until 2007 that we began to look seriously at the festival concept as the local industry began to get to where it needed to be. Comedyinspain established an initial 3 year plan to trial the previously untested idea of a multilingual comedy festival and find the best model.
Since 2007 FIC BCN have presented their comedy shows in 7 languages: English, Castellano, Catalan, Dutch, Swedish, Italian, German, mime clown and 2014 will introduce Russian.
Festival Internacional de Comedia de BarCeloNa (FIC BCN) has survived and developed with a lot of hard work and investment from ComedyinSpain and because a Barcelona public have engaged with it, want it and have paid to view the quality entertainment that it has provided.
Events take place in some of Barcelona’s most interesting venues spread right across the city from the big to the very intimate alternative spaces. The festival programme includes some real hidden gems and what better way to experience the city´s venues than with a live show. All informations on the official webpage of the festival.
