Not long now before the laughs roll out at the second Key Comedy Festival with some top stand up talent heading for the Boro!

We can’t wait for the return of the Comedy Festival from March 12 – 18 and the line-up looks fantastic so we hope you’ve bought your tickets!

The international talent includes Paul Sinha (15 March), David O’Doherty (12 March) and Andrew O’Neill (15 March).


There’s even something for younger comedy fans with the Comedy Club 4 Kids (15 March) – an opportunity for children to see well known faces on the comedy circuit and experience the atmosphere of a comedy club, but without the worries of inappropriate content!


Panel show favourite Chris Ramsey (18 March) brings his new tour The Most Dangerous Man on Saturday Morning Television to the Key, after being sent off the Soccer AM sofa for bad behaviour. Mark Thomas regales us with his 100 Acts of Minor Dissent(13 March). In the past his mischievous antics have caused changes in the law and annoyed people that should have known better!


David Baddiel (14 March) performs his first full-length show for 15 years, Fame: Not the Musical, which discusses the modern day obsession with celebrity. Internet sensation Vikki Stone (13 March) returns to the Key with her hilarious combination of songs and silliness. Expect more surreal behaviour than you can shake your stick at from Peacock and Gamble: Heartthrobs (14 March), whilst charming Teesider, Patrick Monahan, showcases his anecdotal humour in Cake Charmer (12 March).

Rounding off what is set to be a fantastic festival are Austentacious with An Improvised Jane Austen Novel (18 March). Based entirely on audience suggestions, you will discover Austen works you never knew existed!
