“With Comedy in the Park our aim is to bring live comedy back in a big way. You will be guaranteed a night of side splitting laughter, with the world’s best comedians providing a night of entertainment in an open air theatre style setting.

“Now more than ever, people need something to look forward to. It’s been a tough year for live comedy but it’s coming back with a bang!”
