Partnerships

The Hull Comedy Festival is one of East Yorkshire’s largest ticketed festivals and we take pride in developing local and regional talent and using comedy to achieve social good.

We also need support to continue our work and have developed partnerships and supporters that help us achieve good and continue to bring big belly laughs to Hull and the surrounding areas.

After all the fun, we also understand the commercial pressures on a business, and we know that any investment needs to deliver. And deliver is what we do best.
