For ten days in December, Montreux becomes the French speaking capital of laughter. As the most prestigious humour festival in the French speaking part of Switzerland, the Montreux Comedy Festival organises Galas every evening which are broadcasted on Swiss and French television channels.

The Montreux Comedy Festival attracts the best French and international comedians on the shores of Lake Geneva. For ten days, the prestigious evenings succeed each other at the Stravinski Auditorium on 2m2c. Each Gala is an elegant harmony between the best-known humorists and the discovery of the new comedy generation. With seven new Galas, including an international Gala completely in English, this 30th edition of the Montreux Comedy Festival is the must-see event of this year.
