Following on from our sellout tour in July, The Laughter Factory is back in August with our greatest quest of all time, ‘To save the world from sadness’.
We have adapted our set up to meet social distancing requirements, ‘Our guests are spoilt rotten with table service. We hope they don’t go soft on us’ say’s Northern Bird Gail Clough.
To help knock us into shape, three of the world’s finest stand ups will be armoring themselves up to charge into battle against boredom.
Leading the way will be Scottish comedian Leo Kearse, part of the new wave of raw, bold, American-inspired comedians taking the big UK clubs by storm. His “Extinction Rebellion” video slamming woke lefties went viral, selling out shows in the UK. Meanwhile, Leo’s popularity abroad is rocketing, with 2019 seeing him perform in 20 countries.
Making his debut on the Laughter Factory Eddy Brimson will be bringing you a supersized cup of comedy. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to get intimate with one of the UK’s most hilarious headline acts.
Finally, refreshing and fearless Dana Alexander, has been described as 'smart, irreverent and revolutionary'. One of Russell Howards most memorable guests, Dana is without doubt one of Britain and Canada's hottest emerging young comedians,

Scottish Comedian of the Year 2017/18
UK Pun Champion 2015
"Genuinely thought-provoking...hugely entertaining….a warm and personal show” ★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN
“A triumphant hour of outrageous and dark jokes, not pushing but gleefully running straight through the boundaries of taste and acceptability in today's "woke" culture” - BRITISH COMEDY GUIDE RECOMMENDED SHOW
"Kearse is seriously good. Quick, funny, smart and to the point...hilarious" - KATE COPSTICK
"A giant of the art" - STEVE BENNETT, CHORTLE
“Rampantly self-interested, prone to generalisations and stereotypes, and with a penchant for punching down rather than up...the audience were roaring with laughter” - ★★★★ One4Review.co.uk
"The fact he gets belly laughs out of global warming, self-identification and the unequal distribution of white privilege does not make him a racist, transphobic monster, just a very good comic” ★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN
"Very funny, very dirty, occasionally shocking, but edgily likeable and happily endearing, eliciting the guilty pleasure of laughter from a wide-eyed audience" - ★★★★ THE LIST
"Very tall and very funny... such energy and aplomb that the audience is left powerless to resist... one of the most enjoyable shows of the Fringe" - THREE WEEKS ★★★★
“A personal and entertaining comedy hour” - ★★★★ LONDON THEATRE
"He churns out the gags, provoking a steady stream of laughs in his tight set, which strides purposefully between topics with muscular, efficient lines on each. Kearse was both an audience and judges’ favourite, and the deserved winner" - Steve Bennett, Chortle
“Bad…genuinely offensive…a traumatic experience for some audience members” - The National Student
