8 out of 10 Cats star heading to Dubai

The Laughter Factory brings more comedians to Dubai this summer

While the summer heat never lets up, neither will the LOLs thanks to The Laughter Factory’s of comedians.

In this Summer of Laughter tour, taking place from Wednesday June 20 to Friday June 22 around the comedy club’s signature venues, expect three top-notch comic performances that will have your sides hurting throughout the season.

The headlining act of the tour is none other than 8 out of 10 Cats favourite Desiree Burch, whose hysterical one-person acts have left crowds in stitches.

She received a Funny Woman award in 2015 for a reason, as the New Yorker (now based in London) has guest-starred in a number of hit UK shows, including Live at the Apollo and QI. Her brash comedy routine is what gained her a lot of the popularity she has today.

Also on the line-up, comedy writer and stand-up Joe Bor will be showcasing his brilliant and sharp observational humour. He’s previously supported the likes of Jack Whitehall, Kevin Bridges and Alistair McGowan.

If you’re wondering why The Graham Norton Show gets so many laughs, it’s all thanks to Bor’s warm up act. He’s also done writing and routines for Have I Got News For You, Still Open All Hours and Alan Carr Chatty Man.

Finally, if you’re up for some outlandish stories, Nick Page has plenty to dish out. He was runner-up for English Comedian of the Year in 2016, and has performed in more than 30 places around the globe – from Malaysia to Russia.

This time round, The Laughter Factory will be making a return to Zinc at the Crowne Plaza, which has hosted comic legends Michael McIntyre and Russell Howard.
