Taking place from March 31 to April 1, this new comedy festival is set to become an annual event.
There will be entertainment over lunchtime on Saturday afternoon on Blackpool’s newest attraction, the Comedy Carpet followed by an adult comedy show in the Merrie England Bar on North Pier at 9.30pm starring Slaughterhouse Live. Led by panto regular Steve Royle, they have a cult following on the comedy circuit & have had their own show on Granada TV.
The weekend culminates with the Comedy Carpet Live Gala Show at the Grand Theatre starring comedy illusionists Barry & Stuart (from BBC TV’s The Magicians). Frisky & Mannish (from BBC Radio 1), Jeremy Lion (Justin Edwards from, “Have I Got News for You” & “Mock the Week”), Bernie Clifton & Chris Ramsay (who has an upcoming new BBC series) provide even more laughs.
This event will be scheduled for the week before Easter each year.
