The Laughter Factory is beyond delighted to be opening in the best bar in town, Lock Stock & Barrel, Grand Millennium Business Bay. The two heavy weights of Dubai nightlife have got together to bring you the ultimate after brunch party. The very best in live stand up coupled with the liveliest venue in the city is going to be a marriage made in hell. We are all can’t wait to to feel the heat and burn.

Sparking the flames by making his debut on the Laughter Factory, we have the Dom of unbridled and unfiltered comedy. Michael Gelbart, is not only a best-selling author but also boasts prime time specials on Comedy Central and Amazon Prime. He was also a star of the Late Late show and Comics Unleashed.

This risk-taking, comedy-whirlwind, captivates audiences and ridicules them into temporary submission.

When we want a great referral for the Laughter Factory we always turn to Jason Manford for advice,”One of my favourite discoveries of 2019 was Emmanuel Sonubi. Hilarious, warm and unique. If you don’t see him now, you won’t be able to smugly tell your mates about it when they’re paying £50 for a crap seat at the O2!”  Enough said, Jase!

Finally, both ‘Refreshing and Fearless’ is the best way to introduce Dana Alexander. Her comedic style has been described as ‘smart, irreverent and revolutionary’. Currently one of Britain and Canada’s hottest, emerging young comedians.

So let’s raise the roof and the dead (maybe not!) Come and join us for what is always the most outrageous, fun, night-out in town.

“One of my favourite discoveries of 2019 was Emmanuel Sonubi. Hilarious, warm and unique. If you don’t see him now for a tenner, you won’t be able to smugly tell your mates about it when they’re paying £50 for a crap seat at the O2!”  Jason Manford

London based Emmanuel Sonubi has only been on the comedy circuit for what feel like five minutes and he’s already garnering himself a reputation as one to watch out for…

Ex-bouncer Emmanuel was born and bred in North London where he extracts most of his hilarious interactions with the vibrant cockneys and reprobates he has encountered. Now, as a father of two, the soon to be headliner has a wealth of material of playing pranks with his kids as well as his questionable parenting skills. 

Since 2015 he has performed at numerous high profile clubs including at The Comedy Store, The Glee Club, Comedy Loft, The Comedy Café, Top Secret Club, Butlin’s Weekenders, The International Comedy Festival Rotterdam, Altitude Comedy Festival at The Ski Show, plus regular shows in Ibiza, Cyprus, Turkey and Holland. He has even headlined the Bestival comedy tent (by accident)
