Southport Comedy Festival 2018


It's going to be another fantastic year for the Southport Comedy Festival now in its 8th year!

Headline acts and T.V names from across the World of Comedy will descend on our lovely seaside town from the 4th – 21st October  for 18 days of hilarity.

We are still busy programming the festival but already we have some great shows onsale to include Zoe Lyons, Hal Cruttenden and a return visit from  Jimeoin and The King of Comedy Jason Byrne  with more T.V  names to be announced over the next coming months.

 The Festival offers something for everyone. As well as classic stand-up, there are our unique Comedy Pub Crawls, squeaky clean shows, shows in restaurants (meals included), shows in marquees, comedy workshops, comedy bingo, family shows and children’s events. Plus the annual search for the next big comedy star with The Southport Comedian of the Year heats and grand final. 


So please turn off your TV’s this October and come and have a laugh.


Let’s Keep Southport Smiling
