Croydon Comedy Festival

The 5th Croydon Comedy Festival will take place during the summer of 2019. If you'd like to take part in any capacity please get in touch.

There have been some questions concerning what the Croydon Comedy Festival is. Well, it's all very relaxed and flexible but anything comedic happening in the Borough could be included. There is a focus on a series of shows in the summer (so far this has been during June and July) but the Festival has spread from an annual event to an ongoing promotional tool. I hope that clears things up but I fear it may create further confusion!
