The UK Kids’ Comedy Festival returned to a live festival in February 2022 (with some online shows) & featured over 75 performances, workshops, or events.

A MASSIVE thank you so all those who performed, promoted, worked in venues, volunteered, sponsored, funded, featured or attended the festival.  Comedy fans from across the UK came and joined in the fun, alongside our local audience.

The festival featured performances by Comedy Club 4 Kids, Jeddy Bear and Gary’s Picnic, John Robertson, Jonny Awsum, Kids Court, The Mighty Kids Beatbox Comedy Show, Olaf Falafel, Rosie Jones & Samantha Baines.  Plus our regular exclusive events: Laugh Term Comedy School, Loving Laughing and Joke Spot, details of which you can find below.

We remain committed to making sure The UK Kids’ Comedy Festival continues to grow and to be a massive celebration of British comedy. Without the support of all our partners and you, our audience, none of this would be happening, so thank you so much for continuing to support the festival and our charity Big Difference – if you are able to support us with a donation, we would be very grateful, you can donate here.
