The longest-running comedy night in the Middle East, The Laughter Factory has been bringing international comedians to our shores since 1997 – a feat which won The Laughter Factory a Lifetime Achievement Award from Time Out Dubai back in 2013.
Over the years, huge names, including the likes of Michael McIntyre, Dara O’Briain, and Sarah Millican, have been coming here, entertaining Dubai audiences and leaving people rolling in the aisles. A lot of them have come back over the years, performing in huge rooms to hundreds of people, so if you want to see comedians in slightly smaller and more intimate venues, before they get big, then The Laughter Factory is here to help.
The monthly event sees three up-and-coming stand-up comics from around the world (some of whom you’ll probably recognise from TV shows) on the bill, and they stop off in Dubai before heading on to more gigs in Abu Dhabi and Doha. Regular venues include the Movenpick in JBR, McGettigan’s in JLT, the Grand Millennium in Barsha Heights, and the Gramercy in DIFC.
As well as running comedy nights, The Laughter Factory also run other events at select venues, including a supper club and the UAE’s first ‘comedy brunch,’ so you get to enjoy some food along with the jokes.
