2019 has been a bumper year for comedy tours. Top-class stand-up comics are touring the UK throughout the year, and well into 2020. If you’re looking for tickets to attend a comedy show or stand up comedy gig near you, there are loads to choose from. Watch established stand up comedians and their razor-sharp wit, or get tickets to an up and coming performer.
Our Comedy Guide boasts a “Now on tour” section which lists all the comedians who are currently touring or embarking on a tour within the next month. Right now, you can catch the following line-up of comedians:
Plus, The Horne Selection are currently out on their biggest ever UK tour, combining music and comedy (including plenty of puns) in a totally unpredictable way.
In addition to seeing comics perform at comedy clubs and in arenas, you can also experience big laughs in the West End and at other theatres around the country. Edinburgh Festival Fringe has a rich line up of side-splitting talent that’s not to be missed each August.
Don’t miss the live Only Fools and Horses the Musical which is playing until early 2020. A beloved classic comedy brought to life on stage at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket, it stars comedy giant Paul Whitehouse as Grandad, along with Tom Bennett as Del Boy Trotter and Ryan Hutton as his hapless brother Rodney.
Or there’s Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, a riotous comedy experience featuring performances of the Bard’s greatest work by a cast in which one member is tipsy. Right now the Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare troupe is doing Hamlet at London’s Leicester Square Theatre. The troupe will be on tour in theatres across the UK from autumn 2019 with A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
You can look forward to a lot of comedy superstars hitting the road at the end of 2019 and early 2020 as they perform for audiences. In the “Coming soon” section of our Comedy Guide we tell you all about the comedy tours and stand up shows due to launch and head your way in the next six months. These include the following:
Don’t miss legends and Hollywood stars like Ian McKellen on Stage , Lenny Henry in An Evening with Lenny Henry: Who Am I Again? and Steve Martin & Martin Short with the Funniest Show in Town at the Moment.
Professor Brian Cox will return with Robin Ince at the end of the year with their Christmas Compendium 2019.
Or why not get tickets for unique improvised comedy plays based on Jane Austen novels with the Austentatious troupe of comic performers.
The UK is home to several great comedy clubs. Enjoy stand-up shows, improv, storytelling, sketches, open mics and much more at The Comedy Store which has over 40 years in the business to its name. For a funny night out, visit their two permanent UK homes: The Comedy Store London and The Comedy Store Manchester.
Female comedians are among the UK’s hottest commodities. Some of the top-name women stand-ups and shows heading out on tour to crack audiences up this year include The Scummy Mummies Show and Sindhu Vee in Sandhog. Or get tickets to see Celeste Barber, the self-proclaimed queen of everyday sophistication and low-budget lifestyle aspirations, and Andrea McLean in a night full of gossip, insider stories and secret confessions. Plus, Deborah Frances-White’s comedy podcast The Guilty Feminist will be out on the road in late 2019.
Comedians often preview content for their brand new shows – ones that sure to go on tour across the UK – with Work in Progress dates. This year you can catch comics John Bishop, Jack Dee and Milton Jones doing special dates. In addition, the one and only Ricky Gervais has been kicking off the 2019/2020 world tour of his brand new SuperNature show with a series of preview dates
A night of comedy makes a great gift idea for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas or really any occasion! Buying tickets to a comedy tour – or a Ticketmaster gift card if you’re unsure of the right comedian – are perfect to give anyone you know who likes a belly laugh.
