Comic Gathering At Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre

So what is all the hullabaloo about this new comedy festival in Stratford-Upon-Avon? Supported by The Royal Shakespeare Company, the festival will take place over the Bank Holiday weekend between the 23rd-26th May. There will be twenty-six individual events and twenty-seven comedians all performing at various venues. The opening night will be at the RSC Courtyard Theatre; starting at 7.30pm, the two-hour show costs 20 and will feature Ed Byrne, Danny Bhoy, Miles Jupp, Rob Beckett, Matt Forde & more. For the rest of the weekend, most shows are an hour and a quarter long, and cost 15.50.

Stand-ups will include the low key, whimsical routines of James Acaster, who will be performing alongside newcomer, Roisin Conaty, and the actor from Skins, Joel Dommett. Also on call will be the radio comedian, Andy Zaltzman, who has been on shows such as The Bugle podcast and Radio 4's Political Animal.

The Horne Section is a mix of music and comedy, while DJ Monski Mouse will be hosting is a unique disco for parents and children. Instead of bopping to funk, it will be time for head, shoulders, knees, and toes. The 'baby disco' lasts 45 minutes and costs 9.
