Comedy Carnival's History
Comedy Carnival’s first show was in June 2004 when the club was a monthly showcase of antipodean stand up comedy. That year, the club featured Adam Hills, Rhys Darby, Jim Jeffries, Steve Hughes, Kitty Flanagan, Ben Hurley, Julia Morris and Jarred Christmas.
After the club hosted Flight of the Conchords in one of their few London appearances in 2005, the club’s roster was expanded to include broader international comedy talent, including Reginald D Hunter, Russell Brand, Stephen K Amos, Angelo Tsarouchas and Tom Stade.
In 2007, the comedy club went weekly and hosted shows featuring key British comedians such as Michael McIntyre, Rhod Gilbert, Russell Kane, Mark Watson, John Bishop and Andrew Maxwell.
Comedy Carnival focusses on what you are really there to enjoy; the comedy. The highest quality acts, guaranteed to bring the laughs, and have you wiping away tears and holding your sides. What more could you want?”
