The Southport Comedy Festival in association with Halliwell Jones BMW is back for its 12th year.
From 29th September to 15th October stars of the comedy world will descend on the lovely seaside town of Southport for 17 fun-filled days of laughter.
The entire festival will be staged for a third year in a giant luxury heated and seated marquee courtesy of Elite Marquees in Victoria Park, home of the world-renowned Southport Flower Show. Thousands of comedy goers came along over the last two years to enjoy the festival in a marquee and the feedback has been so good that it is all happening again but this time it’s bigger and better than ever.
Alongside returning favourites Jason Byrne, Paul Sinha, Rich Hall, Gary Delaney, Nina Gilligan and Jimeoin this star-studded festival welcomes TV comedians Tom Davis, Seann Walsh, Clinton Baptiste, Simon Brodkin, Jen Brister, Mark Steel, Emmanuel Sonubi and Mark Nelson.
The festival is also supporting the stars of tomorrow with the return of the Southport New Comedian of the Year Competition, sponsored by Dragon Soop. This event is always a highlight of the festival.
The festival is proud to support charity fundraising. This year we will be ‘raising money while raising a smile’ with special charity events planned for two great local charities Community Link Foundation and Southport Flower Show.
So Folks, come along to the Southport Comedy Festival this autumn and Keep Southport Smiling!
