The Laughter Factory reveals February line-up

February is promising to be a month filled with hilarity and it’s all thanks to The Laughter Factory’s announcement of three stellar comedians on the line-up.

Kicking off on Valentine’s Day (Thursday February 14), the new tour features Geordie funnyman John Fothergill, international sensation Lateef Lovejoy and UK star Ria Lina.

The Laughter Factory's gigs take place in various locations, and this time around you can catch a night filled with laughter at its brand-new spot in Hilton Dubai Jumeirah at The Walk, JBR.

Early bird tickets will be priced at Dhs140, available a week before the first show, while regular tickets will set you back Dhs160.

So, who are these comedians? First up is the Geordie man who’s taken the world by storm, John Fothergill, promising to have the crowds in knots of laughter as soon as he picks up the mic.

He started out in a band called One Hand One Heart, but quickly learned that his comedic talents couldn’t go unnoticed – and racked up acclaimed performances in Cape Town, Melbourne, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and many more.

As for Lateef Lovejoy, you may know the multi-talented star from international comedy circuits, being a headline act in countries such as the US, Sweden and South Africa.

The stand-up comedian and actor has recently completed writing and producing a comedy sketch show pilot "HeSaidSheSaid”. With such achievements, he’s sure to give a good chuckle.

To finish off the night, Ria Lina will have audiences on the floor with her cheeky charm and intelligence, telling jokes about what it’s like to be an Asian woman living in the UK.

The British comedian’s show Dear Daughter was Winner of Best Comedy Show at the Greater Manchester Fringe and her recent show Taboo Raider can be seen on NextUp Comedy on Amazon Prime.

While we wait for February to come, you can still check out January’s trio of comedians until Friday January 18, including live sets from Tom Stade, Larry Dean and JoJo Smith.

So pick a date and get ready for February’s month of laughter.
