The streets of Nottingham will be ringing with the sound of laughter when the city’s seventh annual Comedy Festival takes place from November 6-14.

The Nottingham Comedy Festival 2015 Line-up is now revealed

With over 110 shows, this year’s festival is much bigger than ever before. There are many returning faces to the festival as well as lot of new (to the festival) acts.

The festival is always keen to bring together local, national and international acts and this year is no exception. Local acts include Matt Forde, Scott Bennett, Patrick Draper, Alternative Film Network, Jon Pearson and Fran Jenking.

There are also many other recognisable acts including Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse, Gary Delaney, Rob Beckett, Imran Yusuf, Kerry Godliman, Andy Zaltzman, Hal Cruttenden and Justin Moorhouse.

There will even be comedy on a bus. The vehicle will be parked at Castle Rock Brewery. Look out for the bus arriving on Bolero Square on the opening day of the festival and its family friendly activities at weekends.

The festival this year is proud to be supporting The National Autistic Society. This charity helps millions of people a year and does essential work to help those with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
