Queen Square will once again be the home of laughter and mirth when Bristol Comedy Garden returns to the city in an epic 5-day chuckle-fest from Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th June 2018.
Expect, then, a gamut of some of the best, most revered and, naturally, funniest comedians currently on the chuckle-inducing gig scene to hit the always-impressive Big Top stage plonked on the lush lawns of Queen Square.
So, what funny bone-tickling line-up can we expect this year then? First up, there's Jonathan Creek-starring and QI regular Alan Davies, who will be in more than comfortable comedy company thanks to the observational quips of Josh Widdicombe, one-line master Milton Jones, the deadpan and hilarious Reginald D Hunter, Radio 4 fave Shappi Khorshandi, Mock the Week star Miles Jupp, the surreal brilliance of Ross Noble, sharp-as-a-tack Fern Brady, Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell, and cult legend Adam Buxton.
And that's just for starters, as there are plenty more purveyors of mirth ready to join this already stellar list of comedy heroes. As always, there will be plenty of top-notch food and drink being served throughout the comedy extravaganza to satiate your thirst and hunger pangs betwixt the hilarity, courtesy of gourmet street food and bars.
Unsurprisingly, some of the big-name gigs have already sold out, but there are still plenty that haven't so there's ample opportunity to get your comedy kicks. You can find out more and get your mitts on tickets here.
