Comedy is one thing I love! And when I say ‘love’, I don’t mean that in the passive way of “oh I love that dress”, I mean I am in love with comedy. I can always count on it to cheer me up when I’ve just had enough. Let’s be honest, comedy is man’s best friend! So here are the top six acts coming to Hull Comedy Festival that you do not want to miss…
Tuesday 29th October, 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
For just £15, you can see this BAFTA winning comedian! Not only has he been touring for three decades with his own one man shows, but he has also been involved in the films: ‘I, Daniel Blake’, ‘Versus: The Life and Films of Ken Loach’, ‘Two Graves’, ‘Walk Like a Panther’, ‘Ravers’, ‘The Keeper’, and ‘Fisherman’s Friends’, including his new up-coming film in 2020: ‘Blithe Spirit’.
Friday 1st November, 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Born and bred in Hull, Jack Gleadow is back! Don’t miss seeing his show ‘Mr Saturday Night’, from Edinburgh Fringe Festival for just £14.
