Mad Men and BBC award-winning comics coming to Dubai

The Laughter Factory reveals Dubai November line-up

1/3

A Greek-Canadian, Japanese and Brit walk into a bar… And leave the whole room in stitches with a bunch of gags.

Okay, luckily for you we’re leaving the jokes to the aforementioned three – mainly because they’re the next stand-up comics coming to Dubai on The Laughter Factory tour.

Greek-Canadian funnyman (via Los Angeles) Angelo Tsarouchas is returning to the Middle East to give us a masterclass in how to live life to the fullest.

Mini Japanese award winner Yuriko Kotani is preparing to prove that her small demeanor has nothing to do with her ability to command a stage.
Since winning the BBC’s New Comedy Award 2015, she has gone from strength to strength.

She will be making her Dubai debut alongside headliner Brit Paul Thorne, described as a “Must see!” by UK newspaper The Guardian.

He is one of the UK’s most-respected comedians and regularly takes to radio and TV to share his views on political incorrectness.

The trio will play four nights in Dubai next month.

The show starts at ON42 Media One Hotel, Media City, on Thursday November 8, at 8pm before they race up town to play the Grand Millennium Dubai, Barsha Heights, at 9pm.

The following night on Friday November 9 they kick-off at Jumeirah Islands Club, Jumeirah Islands, at 7pm before finishing at Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach, JBR, at 9pm.

Tsarouchas has appeared on a string of American TV shows including Mad Men, Sullivan and Son and Blue Mountain State. He has also toured on Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show.

London-based Kotani started performing in 2014 and was labelled as “one to watch” by our Time Out London colleagues.

Her well-crafted humour has seen her scoop a catalogue of awards and saw her appear on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central.

Thorne has built a reputation as a topical comic, with fine-tuned material and quirky songs that have cemented his place on the UK comedy circuit.

He has performed across the world including in Singapore, Thailand, Canada, Australia, China, Japan and Dubai.

We’ll see you at the bar, in sides splitting of course.
Dhs150. Nov 8-9. Various locations, book www.thelaughterfactory.com.
