All Lincoln Comedy Festival acts unveiled

Lincoln’s annual Comedy Festival returns for a fourth year and the full line up has been announced, with tickets now up for sale.

The comedy festival takes place from October 5 to October 11.

There are 19 shows across seven days, including a collection of familiar names like Jack Whitehall and Shappi Korsandi, alongside lesser-known performers from musical comedy, stand up and improvisation in the UK.

Other acts coming to the festival include Little Howard, Arthur Smith and Sean Walsh.

This year the festival will take part across three venues: Lincoln Drill Hall, LPAC and Engine Shed, meaning they could have a bigger line up.

Local budding comedians will also have the chance to take their first steps into stand up as they can sign up for a course with the former resident compere at The Comedy Store Tony Allen.

Festival Director Shaun Almey called this year’s line the “biggest and most eclectic programme of comedy we’ve put on during a festival”.

Almey added: “We’ve worked hard alongside all 3 venues to bring some of the best performers in the UK to the city for a celebration of comedy, having a good laugh and for some people the opportunity to take their first steps on the road to being a comedian.

“We hope there is something that most people will find suits their taste in the programme and we can all have a laugh together for a week in October.”
