Learn the art of laughter at Birmingham’s Comedy Festival

Birmingham, West Midlands

Watch stand-up from some of the world’s top comedians and then learn how to be funny yourself at the Birmingham Comedy Festival.

Birmingham Comedy Festival is no laughing matter - this gagfest attracts some seriously big names, with Joanna Lumley, Rich Hall and James Acaster among those who set to grace the stage at this year's event. 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. This year's Birmingham Comedy Festival takes place between 5-14 October with a variety of events available to book now.
