Brady will perform her show Fern Brady: Power and Chaos at the Lemon Tree on October 3.
Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “Fern is a wonderful addition to the Aberdeen Comedy Festival and we are sure she will be a hit with locals and visitors to our city alike.
“Aberdeen Inspired has big ambitions for this year’s festival and adding names like this, alongside previously announced acts like Ben Elton, Daniel Sloss, Count Arthur Strong and Jimeoin reinforces our commitment to delivering a world class event.
“Aberdeen is establishing itself as a destination of choice and with our festival scene growing in stature, there’s never been a better time to enjoy everything the city has to offer.”
