The Laughter Factory
This month’s comedy-fest boasts a delightfully diverse line-up. Sean Collins made his name at home in Canada before splitting for the UK, where he’s performed three hit shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. Former music journo JoJo Smith presented TV hit Funny Business and has toured alongside Red Dwarf star Craig Charles –before turning to comedy she worked as a bingo caller at Butlins and a tour PA for Dexy’s Midnight Runners. Meanwhile, Rainer Hersch balances comedy with a second career as a classical pianist and conductor. After completing a four-week West End run of his own show Rainer Hersch’s Victor Borge, this winter he will start a 30-date orchestra tour conducting Strauss. Wonderfully bizarre.
Dhs140. 9pm. Until July 6. Mazina, The Address Dubai Marina, www.timeouttickets.com
The Road to Edinburgh
Ahead of their first trip – or indeed any UAE comedian’s trip – to the renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival, local group Dubomedy are testing their material on what they hope will be a safe Dubai crowd. On the bill are Ray Addison, Jamie Johnson, host Mina Liccione and headliner Ali Al Sayed – or, as the team bill it, ‘two Brits, an Arab and a Yank’.
Dhs100-125. 7.30pm. The Address Dubai Marina, www.timeouttickets.com
