Steeped in history and grandeur, the Castle will play host to some of the biggest names in the world of comedy, all of who will have your funny bone tickled like never before. 

Not only that but alongside the funny festivities will be a sprawling selection of street food offerings that will tantalize your taste buds and satisfy any cravings. From mouthwatering delicacies to irresistible treats, the festival promises a culinary journey that will complement the comedy experience perfectly.

The event, organised by Midlands-based comedy promoters Closeup Comedy, Digbeth Dining Club and Warwick Castle, will showcase an array of award-winning street food, a selection of cocktails, craft beer and fizz bars and host DJs from 6pm each evening, with the comedy beginning at 8pm.

Thursday night will see the online sensation Troy Hawke, of the Greeters Guild, fresh from a sell-out tour of Europe open up the evening, followed by Mock the Weeks Rhys James, Radio 4 and Have I Got News For You’s Hal Cruttenden, Alex Kealy, who hosts a podcast with Ivo Graham, and finally one of the biggest names in comedy: Shappi Khorsandi who will headline the night.

Friday night sees The Chase’s Paul Sinha open up proceedings, followed by the multi-award-winning comedian Garrett Millerick and star of Live at the Apollo Sarah Keyworth. Friday night will then be closed by none other than Dylan Moran.

Dead or alive.”. Dylan Moran is a world-touring sensation, widely regarded as one of the greatest comedians ever.

And the Saturday of the festival will see Radio 4’s Zoe Lyons opening up the show. Zoe Lyons is also a regular on Mock the Week, QI and Dave’s One Night Stand. Scott Bennet will also be performing, off the back of a sell-out UK tour and supporting the likes of Rob Brydon on his own tour.
