‘Life doesn’t get any better than this’ tour


The Laughter Factory is beyond thrilled to announce they will be opening at Arabian Ranches Golf Club and Dukes Dubai, The Palm. We are taking live comedy into every corner of the UAE.  There isn’t going to be a spot left un tickled, says Gail Clough, the Laughter Factory co founder. We are here to help people free their mind from the same old boring bar chat, checking their phone and taking selfies. We want people to come and listen to three of the funniest, wittiest people on earth. The Laughter Factory guarantees, its’ tribe will forget they even own a smart phone, for a couple of hours. Clough reckons, this mental release is one of the best things you can do for yourself.


Britain’s Got Talent star, Daliso Chaponda, made Simon Cowell laugh like a train, so just imagine what he can do to anyone with a sense of humor.

He also got the Golden Buzzer from Amanda Holden.

So in a nutshell, he’s well worth seeing.

Dana Alexander is one of the strongest acts on both the UK and Canadian circuits, described as refreshing and fearless, this dominant force of nature won’t be forgotten in a hurry.

Our Laughter Factory audience is quickly developing a taste for European comics, so this month we are thrilled that George Zach from Greece will be joining us. His global style of comedy has sent him around the world, gaining a unique, hilarious perspective on life.

Come and laugh with us.
