CREATING SMILES FOR OVER 2 WEEKS OF FESTIVAL FUN… AND DOING WHAT WE CAN FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR TOO!
2016 is the tenth festival, many people know and love Hull Comedy Festival – we’re an inclusive force for good and creativity.
Stand-up comedy is a large part of what makes the festival work. We want to bring together audiences with the biggest names in comedy, special shows that really ought to be seen, brand new acts and local talent. All of this will create a bigger appetite for live comedy in order to keep clubs and shows busy throughout the year.
We define the comedy in a much broader sense of “humour”. Humour is fascinating and inspiring. One person’s funny can be another person’s fail. We warmly welcome anyone who has something fun and positive to bring to the party.
Run in 2016 by volunteers bringing in rejuvenated energy and ideas, and with the support of performers, venues, sponsors, causes, volunteers and anyone else interested we can make the festival even stronger!
Cheers for reading.
