Welcome to Brighton Comedy Festival!
As we head towards our twelfth year, we couldn't be prouder of the line up that we have pulled together for you, and look forward to announcing even more names over the coming months.
The festival sets out to present the best live comedy of the year and there is no better place in the country to do this than Brighton. The heady air of the seaside combines with some of the world’s funniest people to create a mixture that is unmissable.
In addition to our well established hub at Brighton Dome, the festival will once again be returning to The Old Market. We will also be working in partnership with Brighton’s year round comedy heart at Komedia including their legendary Krater Comedy Club. With over 70 performances across 16 days, the city really will be awash with laughter.
Not only are we proud to bring you the very cream of British stand up comedy, we are also excited to discover the next generation of talent. To do this we have teamed up with Komedia and Jill Edwards Comedy Workshops to present the inaugural Squawker Award.
It is a delghted to have the likes of Jason Manford, Milton Jones, Sean Lock, Nina Conti, Andy Parsons, Paul Merton, Russell Kane, Lucy Porter and so so many more joing us this year. We will once again be back at the Brighton Dome, Komedia and The Old Market, providing a programme that we believe will have a tickle for everyone's funny bone.
We look forward to see you again this October!
