Featuring over 100 shows in 23 venues across the city, the festival will have more variety than before.

This year, there is more focus on other forms of comedy, aside for stand-up. Venues such as The Loft House, Ned Ludd and Malt Cross are all solely for alternative forms of comedy, such as improv, sketch, character acts.

Festival regulars such as Patrick Monahan, Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, Alfie Moore are all back with their brand new shows and organisers are also proud to have more female comedians than ever before too.

Comedians such as Kate Smurthwaite, Laura Lexx, Anna Morris, Katie Mulgrew, Tiff Stevenson, Juliette Burton will be bringing their solo shows to the festival.

But that’s not all. The likes of Billy Connolly, Jerry Sadowitz, Paul Tonkinson, Tom Wrigglesworth, Lost Voice Guy, Andy Askins, Ed Gamble and for Polish speaking people, Kabaret Ani Mru-Mru are all taking to the stage this November.

With 100 shows, there is a lot taking place.

Go and see your favourites and try something new, you never know what gems are out there but most importantly, come and have a laugh.

The ever expanding Nottingham comedy scene also has a much larger presence, with performances by local acts such as MissImp, Liam Webber, PariaTheatre, Andy Fowler, Jeanette Bird-Bradley, to name a few.
