Just announced: Belfast Comedy Festival
Belfast Comedy Festival, September 23 to October 4, Belfast.
THE Belfast Comedy Festival returns next month, with an eclectic selection of comedy-themed events taking place across the city.
This year's programme promises performances from top touring talents including Daniel Sloss, Sara Pascoe and Diane Morgan - plus homegrown laughs courtesy of Ardal O'Hanlon, Tim McGarry, Nuala McKeever, Paul Currie, Neil Dougan and others.
One notable new name on the bill is Red Bastard, the confrontational clown act from comedian Eric Davis that has earned rave reviews at the last two Edinburgh Festivals thanks to its deliberately uncomfortable and frequently hilarious audience interactions/molestations.
Seriously though, don't Google his videos before bedtime.
"We are delighted to present another rich programme of ground breaking comedy designed to get Belfast laughing," says festival director Peter O'Neill.
"There's something for everyone in our packed programme of over 40 events which provides a great platform for accessing the arts."
