Welcome to the fifth annual Colchester Comedy Festival

    10 glorious days of laugh-out loud comedy awaits this October. Take your pick from stand-up comedy at Colchester Arts Centre, theatre & stand-up at The Headgate, workshops for adults & kids at Firstsite and the immensely popular Colchester New Comedian of The Year at Mercury Studio and Wivenhoe Funny Farm. Charter Hall welcomes The Comedy Store to Colchester for a night of great stand-up.

    We hope there’s something to keep everyone in Colchester laughing this autumn! Colchester Comedy Festival is committed to providing a diverse range of shows to entertain all ages and suit all budgets. We aim to encourage the people of Colchester to get involved in celebrating our thriving local arts and entertainment scene.
