VENUES

As well as theatres and halls, we want to hold shows and special events in all kind of places, such as bars, community centres, disused wasteland… or anywhere unconventional where we can make people smile!

You can do your own thing, or we can help:

  • Show participation in 2016 is free.
  • We can help match us venues with acts and advise on equipment and promotion.
  • Participation in the festival will help, but your show still needs promoting to get an audience.

ACTS & AGENTS

We have 9 years rich experience of welcoming comedy stars, hot new talents, traveling roadshows and local acts doing things for themselves.

Other than a small number of special events, we don’t book acts ourselves, however can broker deals between venues and local promoters with no fees in the middle.

We NOW HAVE A  FULL PROGRAMME FOR 2016

If you are interested in performing in 2017, please keep an eye for the next application window in early 2017. You’ll need to supply us with: desired capacity, price, dates, deal/split and anything that can help us make it work for you and we’ll go to the comedy panel and pick a variety of shows for the festival
