It's back! Cardiff comedy festival. Broader, bolder, brassier than ever before. (we just can't guarantee it'll be funny).
A cardiff july staple since 2009, it has brought you not only the best in local talent but also the likes of rhod gilbert, ardal o' hanlon, lucy porter, richard herring, omid djalili, russell kane, alan davies and many, many more to this fair city and its many, many wonderful and varied venues (old and new. Permanent and temporary. Conventional and just plain weird). And this july we promise to bring you more of the same.
Stand up shows, edinburgh previews, specialist events, established cardiff nights, comedy theatre, workshops, showcases, summer schools, family friendly events, film screenings, the welsh unsigned stand-up awards. For the first time, the festival will be promoting inclusivity through a unique partnership with arts council of england's unlimited programme. There is something for everybody.
The new producing team of the glee club and porter's want to thank the awesomely beautiful scott fitzgerald for founding this awesomely beautiful festival all those years ago and you awesomely beautiful lot for attending the shows. Without you there would be no festival and only with you can it become bigger and better than it already is.
Support local comedy, folks. And laugh. Even if you're just being polite.
