Tampereen Komediateatteri

The Tampere Comedy Theatre is located in the city center, easily accessible by public transport. The atmospheric, castle-like Comedy Theatre Festival Hall evokes admiration both from the outside and the inside. Nearby are many attractions: Tampere Cathedral, the central fire station, the Museum Center Vapriikki, the legendary Hotel Tammer, and of course, the beautifully foaming Tammerkoski rapids. Over the years, the Comedy Theatre has produced a very diverse and fun cultural offering for all ages. No wonder it has broken attendance records! In the words of Theatre Director Panu Raipia: "However, the theatre's result is not numbers, but emotions – laughter and tears."
