Ditch the New Year blues
Line-up revealed for the ‘New Year’s Dissolution’ tour
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.
→ Dhs150. Wed Jan 16. Park Rotana Abu Dhabi, Khalifa Park area www.thelaughterfactory.com.
