Birmingham Comedy Festival

This celebration of all things comical was set up in 2000 to give local comedians a platform.

This celebration of all things comical was set up in 2000 to give local comedians a platform, and from the onset it has featured a programme of quality acts, such as Peter Kay, The Fast Show live, Al Murray and Lenny Henry amongst many others. One of the largest events of its kind in the region, the festival is entirely run by volunteers and not for profit. There’s not just comedy either, when your sides are in pain from so much laughing you can check out one of the festivals’ exhibitions or take part in a music quiz. The festival runs for ten days and ticket prices vary with some events costing as little as £3.
