Having celebrated its most successful year yet in 2012, the Harrogate Comedy Festival is back for its fifth outing this October 6 to 19.
‘Last year was our biggest comedy festival to date, with 87 comedians performing across four venues and more than 10,000 people through the doors,’ says Harrogate Theatre’s executive producer Kevin Jamieson, who started the Harrogate Comedy Festival back in 2009.
Mixing established comic names, cult stand-ups and rising stars, HCF13 has something for every sense of humour. Alternative comedy pioneer and splenetic surrealist Alexei Sayle (Harrogate Theatre, Monday 7 October) has made a welcome return to live comedy earlier this year and promises satire as whip-smart as his 1980s heyday.
