Let’s face it, I think we all need a break. There’s a nationwide need for an escape from the worries of our daily lives, and the global drama that surrounds us: drama that often leaves us thinking “are you having a laugh?!”.
Never fear. You soon could be having a laugh, but for all the right reasons. We’ve hand picked some excellent comedy shows and tours for your entertainment. Some much needed light relief to keep you smiling.
Brighton Comedy Garden
For the first time ever, Brighton Comedy Garden plants its roots this June with five nights of sensational stand-up. See the likes of Alan Davies, Sean Lock, Henning Wehn, Sara Pascoe, Adam Hills, David O’Doherty and many, many more.
Each night, this star-studded bill will raise the roof off the giant Big Top seated venue set in the glorious Preston Park overlooking the beating heart of Brighton.
Join Alan Carr for a very special night of comedy at the recently re-opened and refurbished Alexandra Palace Theatre in London.
This unique and unmissable night of comedy in the gorgeous surroundings of the Alexandra Palace Theatre – one of London’s most stunning hidden gems, which opened in 1875 – will see all proceeds go to Neuroblastoma UK, a charity which fights childhood cancer. Good vibes all round.
Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast
Richard Herring’s interview podcast is now going on the road, away from its usual home in London’s glittering West End.
Previous guests include Stephen Fry, Dawn French, Sarah Millican, Steve Coogan and Bob Mortimer. See the podcast recorded live and hear all the bits that are too libellous and controversial to broadcast, either in a venue near you or at its home at the Leicester Square Theatre.
Matt Forde: Brexit Through The Gift Shop
Political comedian and impressionist Matt Forde might be touching on the topics that make you want to cry tears of sadness rather than tears of joy, but we’re hoping for the latter in his latest show ‘Brexit Through the Gift Shop’.
We caught up with Matt recently, who said “I think people are desperate to laugh at the state we’re in […] If Brexit is going to deliver mass unemployment, social unrest and economic collapse but I get to make some jokes out of it, I’m sure we can all agree that it’s a price worth paying”
