ISY SUTTIE- possibly best known as the star of The Peep Show & Whites
Josh Widdicombe – 2011 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee.

The Festival will remain based at the Brighton Dome with shows across all three of their venues – The Concert Hall, Corn Exchange and Pavilion Theatre, with a stellar line up covering stand-up, improvised, sketch and musical comedy from some of the biggest names in the business. The Brighton Comedy Festival has established itself over the last decade as a staple of the British live comedy calendar. Over three weekends over fifty of the best comedians on the circuit take over the city.
Artistic Director William Burdett-Coutts says:
“The Brighton Comedy Festival is delighted to have reached its tenth anniversary. The Festival is now one of the mainstays of the Brighton entertainment calendar and in the time we have been running almost every major name in British Comedy has taken part. This year we look forward to another stellar line up of fantastic talent.”
