LAUGHTERAMA brings some of the best of Edinburgh Fringe Comedy to Manchester

LAUGHTERAMA is an all-new comedy festival coming to Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl this September, featuring open-air comedy paired with craft beer, street-food and more! You can purchase tickets for the festival right here on our website, scroll down for more details.

The five night festival will include British Comedy Award winner Aisling Bea, the legendary Dylan Moran, Taskmaster’s Phil Wang, master of observation Josh Widdicombe plus many more of the absolute best names in the business.

Many of the acts delighting the critics at this month’s Edinburgh Fringe are also set to appear. Amy Ghedhill is bringing her 4-star “cartoonish flair” to Manchester, plus Celya AB, who’s been branded the “comic shooting to fame”. Podcast and rollerskate aficionado Lou Sanders makes an appearance, not to mention Tim Key riding high from his critically-lauded Fringe show.

From festival organiser Will Briggs:

“We’ve been dreaming of bringing this festival to Manchester for a long time now, the city should absolutely have a stand-out event showcasing the wealth of comedy talent around at the moment. There’s a golden age for comedy right now, with so many platforms to enjoy amazing content. Many of our acts have their own TV or podcast series, but nothing beats live, and we can’t wait to put these acts in front of a Manchester crowd. We already know the shows are going to be electric!”
