She may not have progressed to the Final this week but the self styled “Stockport Housewife” Mrs Barbara Nice will be the headline act at Shrewsbury International Comedy Festival’s opening night on Thursday 18th July, at the town’s flagship venue, Theatre Severn.

Barbara, the comic creation of Phoenix Nights actress Janice Connolly, has been a staple of the comedy circuit for years & will be “living la vida loca” alongside regular Severn Jesters compere Dan Nightingale & up and coming star Scott Bennett, who has provided tour support for Rob Brydon this year.


The Festival Jesters is the first of 24 shows across 4 days in 7 venues, as acts preview their Edinburgh shows in this, the third year of the Festival.

Acts performing over the course of the Festival include Lee Nelson, David O’Doherty, Phil Nichol, Daliso Chaponda, Lloyd Griffith, Larry Dean, Vikki Stone & Angelos Epithemiou.

Tickets for the Festival Jesters, the Gala Show & all Edinburgh previews are available from Theatre Severn Box Office & Website.
