Bristol Comedy Garden 2022: Tickets remaining for headline shows

Posted on: 19 May 2022

Don't miss live sets from some of the UK's most in-demand standup acts.


We're just a few weeks out from the eagerly-anticipated return of Bristol Comedy Garden, an annual celebration of live comedy which will, this year, be taking over The Downs from Wednesday 15 to Sunday 19 June.


Organisers have gone all-out with this year's lineup, with the likes of Nish Kumar, James Acaster and Rose Matafeo among a vibrant lineup of renowned British comics set to perform across the weekend.


While a handful of nights included on this year's Bristol Comedy Garden programme have sadly sold out - it's bad news for disorganised James Acaster fans - tickets do remain for some truly unmissable events.



First of the shows still up for grabs is headlined by none other than David O'Doherty, star of 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and his own Channel 4 show, Along for the Ride. 


David, and his tiny plastic keyboard, will be joined on Friday 17 June by Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Rose Matafeo, Netflix regular and The Masked Singer host Joel Dommett, Taskmaster's Sophie Duker and Live At The Apollo star Ivo Graham.


Tickets remain for a trio of top-notch events taking place on The Downs the following day, opening with internationally-renowned comic Al Murray, backed by Sindhu Vee, Fern Brady, Josh Jones and Angela Barnes.


The mid-afternoon show will be headlined by Death in Paradise and Father Ted star Ardal O'Hanlon, appearing alongside British Comedy Award winner Nina Conti, deadpan musical maestro Huge Davies, Last Leg regular Rosie Jones and Bristol's own Mark Olver.


The final show of a barnstorming Bristol Comedy Garden Saturday is topped by none other than one-line merchant Milton Jones, joined by multi-award-winning comic Reginald D Hunter, proud Bristolian Jayde Adams and Irish raconteur Andrew Maxwell.


If - by some miracle - none of the above tickles your fancy, the final day of this year's Comedy Garden programme sees none other than Alan Davies headline an afternoon show, joined on an all-star bill by Mark Watson, Sikisa and Kiri Pritchard-Mclean.



Alongside a stellar standup offering, Bristol Comedy Garden 2022 will be home to a diverse selection of craft beers, sumptuous street food stalls and much more, all taking up residence on The Downs from 15-19 June. 


Tickets for all of the shows listed above remain available at the time of writing, but are expected to sell out before the event gets underway.
