The Belfast Comedy Festival is one of the big highlights in the comedy festival scene in Ireland. This year it will be taking place from the 2nd until the 8th of October across different venues in Belfast city.
The Festival was initially set up in 2011 by a group of comedy enthusiasts with one of their main goals been to provide a platform for local talent to showcase their comedic skills and also entertain a wide variety of audiences with diverse acts. Celebrating its sixth year the festival has a number of events on offer including workshops, theatre, circus, film, seminars, competitions, quizzes and events for children.
The star attractions of this year’s comedy festival includes The Rubberbandits, John Bishop, Bec Hill, Henning Wehn, Joel Dommett, with local leading comedians including Mary Flanigan, Terry McHugh, Tim McGarry and Caz Brennan. Also for the first time to make an appearance at this year’s festival will be Farmer Michael and Kathleen who are well known for their comedic sketches on social media. There will also be the staging of a new hilarious play Three’s a Shroud.
To keep the kids entertained there will be a special series of workshops which are organised with Australian storyteller, Margaret Linley. This year’s festival promises to entertain audiences of all ages and interests.
