The Southport Comedy Festival


The Southport Comedy Festival is coming to Town 3rd-20th October 2019

The 9th Annual Southport Comedy Festival, held once again in association with local firm The Print Quarter, runs from the 3rd to the 20th of October. With 18 days of laughter, the Festival promises to be the biggest and best yet with more TV names, more venues and even more events including our fantastically popular Comedy Pub Crawls supported by Southport BID.

The Waterfront Southport, are the brand-new sponsors for the annual Southport New Comedian Competition. Both of the preliminary heats and the Grand Final of the competition will be held in The Waterfront’s fabulous entertainment complex overlooking Southport’s Marine Lake.

This year’s star-studded line-up sees the return of some festival favourites with, Jimeoin, Paul Sinha, Tom Binns aka Ivan Brackenbury and Jason Byrne all appearing with brand new shows. Hal Cruttenden  and viral internet sensations Farmer Michael and Kathleen are back for a second year after sell-out shows at last year’s festival.

Stars from TV and radio making their debut at the Festival include Geoff Norcott, Sindhu Vee, Darren Harriott and Neil Delamere. Returning TV names include Daliso Chaponda and Robin Ince.

However, the biggest highlight of this year’s Festival is the Godfather of British alternative comedy Alexei Sayle. Alexei will be appearing at the Southport Little Theatre for a unique one-off performance on Sunday 13th October. This will be a brand-new show, hot on the heels of his critically acclaimed Radio 4 series.

The Festival offers something for everyone. In addition to classic stand-up, there are Comedy Pub Crawls, “Squeaky Clean” shows, Comedy Bingo, a free Children’s Comedy Trail event supported by Southport BID and even Restaurant shows with a meal included!

The Festival is proud to support charity fundraising and this year we’ll be raising money while raising a smile for Southport Lifeboat, Presfield High School, Children’s Charity POD and Friends of Bridge Inn Community Farm.

The Southport Comedy Festival uses local venues and works with local businesses to deliver comedy for all, up close and personal. Because of this, we can keep ticket prices amazingly low. Shows start from just £5 and if you buy your tickets direct from the venues there are no additional booking fees.

Once more we are extremely grateful to our fantastic local and national sponsors. Without their support we just couldn't bring you such great comedy year after year. So Folks, come along to The Southport Comedy Festival this October and Keep Southport Smiling!
