Stewart Lee, Sean Lock & Sara Pascoe to headline huge 2019 Bristol Comedy Garden festival

Posted on: 04 Jun 2019

Queen Square will be awash with a chuckle-busting coterie of first-class and famous mirth-meisters when Bristol Comedy Garden returns to the city from Wednesday 3rd-Sunday 7th July 2019.

The 2019 Bristol Comedy Garden lineup.

365Bristol Money Saving Tip: Smoke and Mirrors host the brilliant Bunch Of Japes comedy nights on Monday and Tuesdays with entry from just £3.50 online or £5 on the door. At the moment they’ve got a huge line up of Edinburgh preview shows - find out more here!


As usual, the centre's popular green and lush spot will be home to a Big Top that will pack in both comedians and seekers of hearty guffaws - and this year's line-up of some of the finest and funniest gagsters currently on the comedy circuit is an absolute belter.  


It'll kick off with brilliant, occasionally surreal funnyman Sean Lock to open proceedings, with the popular Stewart Lee bringing things to a hilarious close on Sunday night. Sandwiched in between those two titans of hilarity, however, is an astonishing roster of funny men and women to keep the laughs rolling in thick and fast.


So, expect US stand-up legend and star of Channel 4's Catastrophe, Rob Delaney; multi-award-winning Sara Pascoe, Nish Kumar (Mock The Week, The Mash Report), Royal Variety star Tom Allen, British Comedy Award winner Aisling Bea, Taskmaster regulars Lolly Adefope and Phil Wang, king of observational comedy Ed Byrne, Alan Partridge star Tim Key, last year's Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Rose Matafeo, and comedy up-and-comers Sarah Keyworth and Rosie Jones. 


And that's just a smattering of some of the top talent hitting the city and spreading the laughs, with many more on this year's programme to keep the crowds on their toes with a relentless torrent of witty one-liners, rib-tickling anecdotes and blistering zingers.


Having a gut-bustingly good time in the company of some of the best comedians on the planet can be hungry and thirsty work, of course - so it's a bit of luck Queen Square will be laden with a plethora of great gourmet street food pop-ups and bars, providing plenty of hearty sustenance and quaffable beverages to keep you going. 


Tickets cost from £20 to £25. You can find out more about Bristol Comedy Garden and get your pass to the city's famous, fabulous rib-tickling nirvana here. Bristol Comedy Garden is located at Queen Square, Bristol, BS1 4QS.
