Confirmed acts include Croydon’s own Lucy Porter and Kevin Day, Edinburgh and circuit regulars such as Danielle Ward, Phil Nichol and Stephen Carlin, and returning favourites Tania Edwards and Elf Lyons.
There will be sketch comedy (Kitten Killers, Lazy Susan), character comedy (Joe Bor is posh climber Jasper Cromwell Jones), musical comedy (Grace Petrie, Gavin Osborn), specials (Science Showoff, Wi-Fi Wars), classic comedy
films on Mondays at The Spread Eagle Theatre, and lots and lots of stand-up comedy.
The movies at the Spread Eagle – from The Italian Job to Airplane!, with hefty doses of Monty Python in between – are free of charge, apart from what you spend over the bar.
For the second time, the Croydon Operatic and Dramatic Association’s summer play on the Wandle Park Bandstand is part of the Festival. This year they are performing Much Ado About Nothing during the final week of the Festival.
Full listings and details of all the venues are on the Croydon Comedy Festival website at www.croydoncomedyfestival.co.uk and tickets are on sale now.
