Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

FANCY a laugh?

You’ll be spoiled for choice this Oc­to­ber when dozens of top co­me­di­ans flock to the sea­side for the 8th an­nual South­port Com­edy Fes­ti­val.

This year’s com­edy show­case runs from Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 4 un­til Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 21 with 18 days of laugh­ter at venues across the town.

The Fes­ti­val, in as­so­ci­a­tion with South­port firm The Print Quar­ter, prom­ises to be the big­gest and best yet with more TV names, more venues and even more events in­clud­ing the Com­edy Pub Crawls sup­ported by South­port BID.

This year’s star stud­ded line-up sees the re­turn of some fes­ti­val favourites, Jimeoin, Jo Caulfield, Tom Binns and Ir­ish funny man Ja­son Byrne all ap­pear­ing with brand new shows. Ja­son now known as the “King of the Fes­ti­val” makes his fifth re­turn visit to the Fes­ti­val.

Other Big TV names ap­pear­ing are Phill Jupi­tus, Zoe Lyons, Hal Crut­ten­den, Paul Sinha, and Bri­tain’s Got Ta­lent fi­nal­ist Micky P Kerr.

The Fes­ti­val of­fers some­thing for ev­ery­one. In ad­di­tion to clas­sic stand-up, there are unique Com­edy Pub Crawls, ‘Squeaky Clean’ shows, Com­edy Bingo, The­atre shows, a free Chil­dren’s Com­edy Trail event sup­ported by South­port BID and even restau­rant shows with a meal in­cluded.

Tick­ets start from £5 and if you buy your tick­ets di­rect from the venues there are no ad­di­tional book­ing fees.
