Celebrating it’s five year anniversary the Belfast Comedy festival has announced it’s line up jam packed with every type of comedy and comedian! The impressive cast of home and visiting stars includes the great Aussie comedian Sam Simmons. Watch him live above and usual Bad Language warning.
Acts from all over the world including Australia (as above) and New Zealand will be performing. It is a 12-day programme running from September 28th to October 9th.. Peter O’Neill the festival director said: “It’s a unique opportunity for local audiences to appreciate comedy that’s not usually in the city.”.
Here is a look at just a quarter of the line up that the festival has to offer.
The festival includes over 70 events and 150 entertainers hosted in 20 venues across the city. The events include everything from workshops, musicals, yoga, theatre to of course stand up.
Some of the highlights include local hero Tim McGarry (Blame Game, Give My Head Peace, Hearts and Minds, A Perforated Ulster) whose one man show will cover building of the Titanic, the 1916 Easter Rising and the Battle of the Somme.
