The Nottingham Comedy Festival was established in 2009, with the aim to bring comedy into Nottingham, introduce new styles of comedy to the city, and allow people the opportunity to see live shows with both their favourite acts and also new artists. We intend to provide a platform for comedians to perform, and to support the newer acts on their journey.

This years festival is running between 4th - 12th November.

The festival takes place in pubs, bars, cafes, restaurants, casinos and theatres across the city, growing each year to include a wider mix of events and to draw more people into Nottingham. In previous years we have over 5000 tickets with people visiting from all over the country and also some from Europe. Nottingham Comedy Festival has gained both local and national press coverage and has featured comedians such as Rhod Gilbert, Jason Manford, Boy with Tape on His Face, Rob Beckett, etc.

To aid its growth and raise the profile of the festival we are looking for sponsors and or anyone interested in purchasing advertising space in our brochure. This would also be a great opportunity for companies to attract a potential new audience.
