Exeter’s Laughing out Loud

Published January 3, 2013

See 3 LOL Festival events at Exeter Phoenix and get 20% off!

Exeter’s comedy festival, Laugh Out Loud kicks off this month and headlining the event are some hilarious award-winning comedians who have recently been raising chuckles on such TV shows as 8 Out of Ten Cats, Have I Got News for You and Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

Tony Law – nominated for the most prestigious prize in live comedy, the Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2012 – brings some gloriously absurd, loud and ridiculous comedy to Exeter Phoenix on 31 January following sell out gigs all over the country. The acridly funny Katherine Ryan can be seen this Friday night on Channel 4’s mash up night in the 8 Out of Ten Cats Does Deal or No Deal special and live at Exeter Phoenix on 30 January.

Also playing at Exeter Phoenix are Chortle Comedy Award nominees Peacock & Gamble; local funny women O’Shea & O’Gaukroger; Rich Peppiatt, an ex red-top reporter who, having appeared twice before the Leveson Inquiry, delivers a merciless dissection of the news paper trade; and Jigsaw, who have received huge critical acclaim for their fast and slick sketches.

More comedy events will take place at other venues throughout the city. Check lolfestival.co.uk for full listings, or see below for events at Exeter Phoenix.
