Live comedy in Dubai

Stand-up comedy night The Laughter Factory returns in January

Stand-up comedy night The Laughter Factory returns in January, bringing with it three well-practised funnymen from the UK. Addy van der Borgh has been described as a putting on a ‘consistently funny and inventive show’, while fellow comedian Jimmy McGhie, labelled as ‘one to watch’ back in 2009, proved himself a comic force to be reckoned with at the Edinburgh comedy festival earlier this year. Last but not least, Carey Marx, a former magician with 19 years of show business experience, offers something slightly different, weaving magic routines into his wild storytelling. A variety of different comic styles, there should be something for everyone here.

The Laughter Factory is at Jambase on January 5, Courtyard by Marriott on January 6, The Aviation Club, Garhoud on January 7 and Grand Millennium Dubai on January 13.
