Join in the fun of the fes­ti­val

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

SOUTH­PORT Com­edy Fes­ti­val 2017 be­gins to­day – and the town is urged to pre­pare for 18 days filled with fun and laugh­ter.

The fes­ti­val is amaz­ing for the town, and is now in its 7th year.

Peo­ple come from all over the coun­try to see what it has to of­fer – no doubt at­tracted by huge TV names such as Jason Man­ford, Jason Byrne and Gary De­laney.

The event is the brain­child of Bren­dan Ri­ley, a very ded­i­cated, and funny, lo­cal co­me­dian.

It’s all about qual­ity, not quan­tity... and that’s why this year’s event isn’t just big­ger but it’s also bet­ter than ever be­fore.

It gives lo­cal res­i­dents and vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to see some of com­edy’s top stand-ups per­form­ing – not just the best in Bri­tain, but the best from around the world.

World class per­form­ers, such as Tom Stade, Rich Hall and Dal­iso Chaponda are adding an in­ter­na­tional flavour to this year’s event.

Bet­ter yet, tick­ets to the shows are very af­ford­able, start­ing at just £3!

The fes­ti­val also utilises and sup­ports lo­cal busi­nesses, and is set to take place through­out 30 South­port venues.

It is filled with a va­ri­ety of shows that are suit­able for peo­ple of all ages. There re­ally is some­thing for every­one.

So why not switch off the TV, get off the couch and go and en­joy some su­perb live com­edy?

The 18-day event be­gins to­day, and will end on October 22.
