Birmingham Comedy Festival is no laughing matter: this gagfest attracts some seriously big names, with Russell Brand, Michael McIntrye and Jimmy Carr among those who have graced its stages and had the audience in hysterics. One day it might be you up there listening to the laughter but, until then, try one of the absolute beginners’ stand-up workshops, where you’ll learn how to turn your everyday life into comedy material and (more importantly) give the illusion of confidence.

This festival goes way past stand-up though; there’s theatre, visual arts, a comedy pub quiz, even classical music is given a funny makeover, and that’s bound to be hilarious.
