Two sold out gigs at Lincoln Comedy Festival

Laughing out: The fourth city comedy festival reports its highest sales ahead of sold-out shows and double bills at popular demand.

Due to popular demand, a second Late Show with Jack Whitehall has hastily been arranged, and the clamour for tickets looks like that will sell out too.

The fourth Lincoln Comedy Festival is only a month away and two shows have sold out already — an extra show has been added for Jack Whitehall, and ticket sales are at their highest ever level.

Shappi Khorsandi and Jon Richardson’s double bill show on Friday, October 7 is sold out, along with Jack Whitehall’s show on Monday, October 10.

Festival Director Shaun Almey said: “It’s great to see shows selling out so early and ticket sales in general looking so healthy this far ahead of the festival.

“It’s looking good for the week of shows that we’ve got programmed and we hope that people keep snapping up the tickets and make it the best festival yet.

“We obviously want to sell as many tickets as possible and encourage as many people as we can to come to watch a show and have a laugh and a look around Lincoln whilst they are here.

“It’s a great place to watch comedy and we’ve got some great shows for people to watch, in the best venues in the city.”

Jack Whitehall’s Late Show will take place at the Engine Shed on October 10 starting at 10.15pm. For a full line-up of events, see the festival’s website.
