The 8th annual Harrogate Comedy Festival (1st-16th Oct 2016) features handpicked acts from across the globe to the town. With acts from Australia, America, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and Europe it’s a comedy festival with an exciting international twist. The 2016 line-up includes Ross Noble, Russell Kane, Adam Hills, Marcus Brigstocke, Rich Hall, Andrew Lawrence, Shappi Khorsandi, Hans Teeuwen, Mae Martin & Adam Hess, Jason Byrne, Jo Caulfield, Mark Watson,  Jarlath Regan, and winner of the 2015 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award, Sam Simmons.  What’s more there’s the weird and wonderful Kill The Beast with Don’t Wake the Damp, ingenious sketch group Gein’s Family Gift Shop, silent comedian The Boy with Tape on His Face – as seen on America’s Got Talent in May - and the spectacularly surreal Pajama Men.  The BIG Weekend on Sat 8th & Sun 9th October is a weekend-round treat of stand-up comedy from Andy Hamilton, Felicity Ward, and James Acaster alongside a kids comedy club, a comedy quiz, live local music in our Circle Bar, a Sunday afternoon set from Fake Thackray, a hangover busting comedy panel, an art exhibition, and more. The fifth Comedian of the Year competition will also take place this year. During two heats a host of tip top comics battle to impress the audience and judges enough to secure a place in the final on Mon 10th October, as well as a spot at the much coveted Hyena Lounge Comedy Club Closing Gala on Sat 15th October.
