Blackpool Laughter Festival to take place from 7th July 2022


Blackpool is renowned for hosting the very best comedians each year and in 2022, Showtown have teamed up with the Grand Theatre, Winter Gardens, Bootleg Social, The Comedy Station and local comic Ruth Cockburn to create a comedy festival for all the family.

The first Blackpool Laughter Festival will take place over four days from Thursday, 7th July and it will be a major milestone in the history of comedy in the seaside town. This celebration of comedy will feature many different acts such as drag diva’s ‘Funny Girls’ cabaret show and a stand-up act from Hayley Ellis entitled The Invisible Mam.

There will be a wealth of options for families of all ages such as stand-up, improvisation, clowns, kids shows and workshops for youngsters who would like to hone their talent or learn more about comedy.

This is certain to be a hugely important event and tickets will be in big demand for all of the acts.

Showtown’s Learning & Engagement Manager, Kerry Vasiliou, said: “ We’ve seen so much comedy talent pass through Blackpool over the years and this festival celebrates that. We wanted to create a festival that would not only entertain but to enable people young and old, to get involved, try out their own comic acts, and explore the history of comedy in Blackpool. We want to ensure that we’re supporting the talent of the future so that we’ll have a thriving comedy scene for generations to come. There will definitely be something for everyone at the festival.”
