Ditch the New Year blues

Line-up re­vealed for the ‘New Year’s Dis­so­lu­tion’ tour

Time Out Abu Dhabi - - INSIDE -

The Laugh­ter Fac­tory re­turns in 2019 with the New Year’s Dis­so­lu­tion tour, fea­tur­ing comics Tom Stade, Larry Dean and Jojo Smith.

WE CAN ALL feel a lit­tle lost after the fes­tive sea­son is over. After all, there’s so much go­ing in Abu Dhabi for Christ­mas and New Year, Jan­uary can seem some­what Áat.

How­ever, The Laugh­ter Fac­tory is back in 2019 to lift us from the post-yule­tide blues. The New Year Dis­so­lu­tion Tour looks like be­ing one of the com­edy club’s best-ever line­ups. Com­ing to Park Rotana on Wednesday, Jan­uary 16 are Cana­dian Tom Stade, Scot­tish co­me­dian of the year Larry Dean and Bri­tish jour­nal­ist turned stand-up Jojo Smith. As al­ways, tick­ets are Dhs150, and are on sale now from www.laugh­ter­fac­tory.com.

Stade is one of the fun­ni­est per­form­ers on the cir­cuit, who has brought the house down on his pre­vi­ous vis­its to the UAE. His no-holds-barred act is not for the faint-hearted, with his brash sto­ry­telling and quick-àre wit reg­u­larly mak­ing au­di­ences’ jaws hit the Áoor.

Any­one who’s seen him be­fore will know what we’re on about, but for the unini­ti­ated, check out his ‘Meat Van sketch’ to see what we mean.

An­other Laugh­ter Fac­tory reg­u­lar, Smith is also an­other co­me­dian with a rich his­tory to draw on and a wicked sense of hu­mour. A reg­u­lar per­former around the world, don’t let her charm de­ceive you, there’s real bite in her punch­lines.

Also on the bill is Larry Dean, who is com­ing to the 21-year-old com­edy club for the Àrst time. His hys­ter­i­cal rou­tines about his life in Scot­land have made him one of the most ex­cit­ing young co­me­di­ans in the UK.
