Laughing at the locals
A Cardiff summer staple since 2009, the Cardiff Comedy Festival has presented not only the best in local talent but also the likes of Rhod Gilbert, Ardal O’Hanlon, Lucy Porter, Richard Herring and much, much more.
The festival absorbs a variety of stand-up shows, Edinburgh previews, specialist events, established Cardiff nights, comedy theatre, workshops, showcases, summer schools, family friendly events, film screenings and the Welsh Unsigned Stand-up Awards. The festival also promotes inclusivity through a unique partnership with the Arts Council of England’s Unlimited programme.
In 2015, a new production team of the Glee Club and Porter’s sought a refresh of the festival’s brand identity and website, with the aim of driving a wider audience to the many weird and wonderful offerings through the month.
