The Laughter Factory reveals stellar March comedy line-up

Looking to get your comedy fix in for St. Patrick’s Day this weekend? Well you’re in for a treat if you’re heading to The Laughter Factory.

Kicking off this weekend (Thursday March 14 to Friday January 15) and the following weekend, the fittingly named “Tickle Your Funny Bone” tour will see three international comedy legends take to the stage, including multi-award winning Alasdair Beckett-King, first timer in the UAE Sarah Callaghan and Edinburgh Fringe favourite Adam Bloom.

If those names alone are enough to get tickets, you can nab them for Dhs160 at www.thelaughterfactory.com. The comedy gig is usually packed out, so make sure to book a spot nice and early.

So, who is this hilarious trio of comedians? First off is Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017 winner Alasdair Beckett-King, also known as “the gentleman thief”. Intriguing.

The Englishman is known for his comedic shenanigans, and apparently knowing plenty about 19th century magicians. Clearly, a mysterious comedy act awaits.

Audiences can then look forward to the talented Sarah Callaghan, making her comedy debut in the UAE – and bringing with her a wakeup call about women in stand up.

She's currently kicking up a storm on her tour, and the award-winning comedian and writer is known to be a powerhouse on stage. She’s also armed with bags of attitude, so get ready for some top quality wit.

To finish off, we’re getting Never Mind the Buzzcocks regular Adam Bloom, who has had sell out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival ever since 1996. A veteran comedian, to say the least.

Along with his stellar Just for Laughs Comedy Tour and his own sell out shows across the UK, expect plenty of side-splitting humour.

Take your pick from one of the dates below and prepare yourself for a barrel of laughs this March.

• Thursday March 14, 9pm – Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach, JBR
• Friday March 15, 7pm – Jumeirah Islands Club
