Have you heard the one about the Halifax Comedy Festival returning this October?


Fans of live comedy are in for a real treat when The Halifax Comedy Festival returns for its fifth year this October!


Dave Gorman will be opening the festival at the Victoria Theatre.  The man behind Dave TV’s hit show Modern Life is Goodish is back on the road with a brand new live show ‘With Great PowerPoint Comes Great ResponsibilityPoint’ on Friday 18 October.


Superb world-class stand up comes from Jimeoin; the Irishman from Australia, acclaimed worldwide as one of live comedy’s true masters, on Saturday 19 October.


For budding comedians ready to take on the spotlight there is a 2 day comedy workshop on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October from veteran of the international comedy circuit Silky White, who is also appearing on Saturday 19 October.


There’s lots of comedy for all the Family this year, with Javier Jarquin – The Card Ninja on Saturday 19 October, Jay Foreman who will be returning with his Disgusting Songs for Revolting Children on Sunday 20 October, following his sell out show last year, and Jeddy Bear and Gary are bringing their comedic retelling of the Teddy Bear’s picnic on Saturday 26 October. Grownups will also love the adult version of the show later that evening!


No subject is taboo from the Hormonal Housewives who will be blasting their witty way through a catalogue of women’s bits in this ultimate ladies night on Wednesday 23 October. Starring Suzanne Shaw, Josephine Partridge and Julie Coombe.


The Victoria Theatre’s regular monthly Dick & Liddy’s Comedy Club will be taking its usual spot on Friday 25 October and is your chance to get close to some amazing stand-up talent.


Not to forget the festival’s annual comedy jaunt to the wonderful surroundings of Halifax Minster – a unique setting for live comedy and this year you have the option of 2 great events! Thursday 24 October promises to be an eccentric night of musical humour with the London Philharmonic Skiffle Orchestra featuring funny songs, crazy costumes and virtuoso music!


The festival closes on Saturday 26 October with That Comedy Thing at The Minster with a very special line-up featuring comedians Allyson June Smith, Sam Avery, Tony Law, and MC Tony Vino.
