Didn’t we do well… The Laughter Factory shortlisted for FIVE Time Out awards in 2017

Now, here at The Laughter Factory we don’t like to brag – but we simply have to shout out the news that this year we’ve been nominated for a whopping FIVE trophies at the Time Out Dubai Nightlife Awards.

That’s right – five of our shows are up for Best Comedy Gig of the past year. FIVE.

There’s only ten on the shortlist – which we like to think makes our odds pretty good.

Were you at any of our shortlisted shows? Check the list below, share your memories with us on social media – or tell the world how great it was on Trip Advisor. Please?

Drum roll… The nominated shows are:

– The Laughter Factory feat. Christian Hugo, Marlon Davis, Tom Wrigglesworth
– The Laughter Factory feat. Ian Coppinger, Justin Moorhouse, Tom Stade
– The Laughter Factory feat. Ian Stone, Jarlath Regan, Wayne Deakin
– The Laughter Factory feat. Jack Dathel, Rob Deering, Sofie Hagen
– The Laughter Factory feat. Jason Manford

We’re up against some pretty stiff competition, with big budget solo shows from Adam Hills, Gabriel Iglesias and Jason Byrne also nominated for the gong.

But you know what? For our little comedy night, five nods is already a win. It’s recognition of the slog we go through every month to bring quality acts to the region – and proves at least half of the good comedy in Dubai comes from us. Not that we like to brag…

Book tickets for this month’s tour – starring Angelo Tsarouchas, Mark Maier and Matt Rees – here now. Who knows, maybe it will be up for an award this time next year, and you’ll feel really silly if you missed out…
