What’s life in the UAE without a little laughter?

We wouldn’t know because we’re always enjoying at ourselves at Time Out Towers (well except when it’s deadline day and we’re out of coffee).

But if you’re feeling like a good session of banter and giggles, we know just the place.

The Laughter Factory is returning to Park Rotana Abu Dhabi on Wednesday November 20 with another top line-up of comedians who are guaranteed to have you snorting into your glass of hops.

There are also four gigs in Dubai, so comedy fans can head to either Movenpick JBR (November 14), Grand Millennium Barsha Heights (November 15), TRYP by Wyndham Barsha Height (November 21) or Dukes the Palm Dubai (November 22). 

Taking to the stagei as part of the Best of the Fest tour are comedians Brennan Reece, Rich Wilson and Adam Rowe.

Making his Middle East debut, Reece has become a regular on the UK stand-up circuit and previously appeared on BBC comedy shows such as the long-running Live at the Apollo and Comedy Central’s Roast Battle.

He’s supported huge names such as Joe Lycett, Rob Brydon, Jason Manford and Nick Offerman as part of their UK tours, plus with more than 6 million views on Youtube and Facebook, he’s pretty down with the kids, too (we wish we could say the same about us).

After selling out three UK tours himself, the Lancastrian is jetting into the capital to help us start the weekend early.

Next up is fellow Brit comic Rich Wilson, who is a proud former winner of the New Zealand Comedy Festival Award for Best International Act.

With a unique and hilarious sense of humour, he definitely knows how to command an audience and he’s a regular performer at the UK’s biggest comedy clubs and festivals around the world.

He and Reece will be joined on the bill by up-and-coming comedian Adam Rowe.

At just 24 year’s old, he’s only at the start of what promises to a successful career in comedy, having already performed at some of the UK’s biggest clubs and festivals.

He’s also opened for Andrew Schulz and Jason Manford, while videos of his stand-up have been viewed a staggering 50 million times. Someone’s popular…
 
If you’re looking for a night out that’s a hundred times more exciting than your usual quiet few in the local pub, you really should give it a go.
But the question is are you brave enough to risk sitting on the front row?
