Stand Up 4 Slapstick

Marcus Brigstocke, Jeremy Hardy, Lucy Porter, Robin Ince

Join Marcus Brigstocke, Jeremy Hardy, Robin Ince and a host of unique top comedy talent for Slapstick Festival’s annual comedy fundraiser.

Bristol’s annual celebration of the finest stand up comics in the business returns for a fifth year with another starry line-up of top comedy talent at Colston Hall, hosted by satirist and stand up, the blisteringly funny Marcus Brigstocke (The Brig Society, Just a Minute, The Now Show).

Marcus has gathered a magnificent cast of co–performers to help raise funds for a cause close to his heart, Bristol’s very own Slapstick Festival

Top stand up comedian Lucy Porter (Mock the Week, The Unbelievable Truth, Have I Got News for You) joins Marcus along with The wonderfully laconic Jeremy Hardy (Have I Got News for You, The News Quiz)  the award-winning comedian, writer and champion of science & reason the inimitable Robin Ince (Infinite Monkey Cage, Book Club). Musician, comedian and author Mitch Benn (The Now Show) and stand up for slapstick favourite (back by popular demand!) Boothby Graffoe complete the initial line up for this exceptional event.

We’re expecting new additions to the line-up too so please check out for the latest info.
