The Laughter Factory is back in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in October

A barrel of laughs are coming to the UAE this October, as The Laughter Factory has revealed another trio of top comedic acts for nights filled with plenty of banter and giggles.

Kicking off on Thursday October 10, the ‘Social Faux Pas’ tour sees stand-up legend Stewart Lee’s favourite woman in comedy, Eleanor Tiernan as the headline act, along with Men In Black International star Mike Capozzola and London-based comedian Emmanuel Sonubi.

First up is Irish comedian Eleanor Tiernan, well known for her work across television, theatre and on radio. She’s also made crowds erupt in laughter at big festivals such as Glastonbury, Latitude and Montreal’s Just For Laughs.

Londoner and ex-bouncer Emmanuel Sonubi, a fast-growing star on the comedy circuit, has performed countless gigs around the world, including Ibiza, Cyprus, Turkey, Holland and many more.

He’ll have a lot to say, with a wealth of material of playing pranks with his kids as well as his questionable parenting skills.

Finally, New York-raised, London-based, pro-comic and hyphen-aficionado Mike Capozzola will be showcasing his talent for dry humour. Along with his outlandish gigs everywhere from the UK to the US, he played as one of the agents in blockbuster Men in Black International.
