Ticket-holders will be treated to a meticulously curated bill at each show. Comedy heavyweights such as observational maestro Ed Byrne, laughter-master Stephen K Amos and ventriloquist queen Nina Conti feature alongside fast-rising stars such as The Mash Report’s viral sensation Rachel Parris and Taskmaster’s Phil Wang. There’s also alt-comedy heroes like Rose d’Or winner Bridget Christie and Alan Partridge’s side-kick Tim Key plus exciting breakthrough talent including Edinburgh Comedy Award champ Rose Matafeoand the brilliantly mischievous Rosie Jones plus even more unbeatable entertainers.
The festival is produced by sibling team Will Briggs and Cass Randolph from 57 Festivals. For the last decade they’ve been running similar events in Greenwich, London and Bristol. Co-Producer Cass Randolph says “It’s fantastic to see tickets flying out to these shows, especially as this is our first year coming to Brighton. We know we’ve got the best line-ups around it feels good to see thousands of others share that same sense of humour. We’re incredibly pleased with the response so far and we’re sure this positivity will carry on through to the shows. The acts always feed off that, and that’s what makes for an unforgettable show!”
The boutique-style festival will be bursting with bars serving craft beers, summer-inspired cocktails and much more. Ticket-holders should arrive hungry for food as well as laughter and tuck-in to a host of hand-picked street-food traders including delights from Zoe’s Ghanian Kitchen, greek grills from 3 Little Pigs, super fine super foods from Kurbside Kitchen, steamed buns by You Boa and ethically infused pizza from The Good Slice plus fair-trade coffee roasters, sweet treats and a whole lot more.
