Birmingham Comedy Festival
The Birmingham Comedy Festival has been drawing attention to our city’s vibrant comedy scene 2001, growing into one of the largest independent arts festival in the region.
Alongside a vast range of new local acts, the festival has featured such A-list heavy-hitters as Lee Evans, Michael McIntrye, and John Bishop! We’re is proud to be part of the festival: not only were the brochures printed at Mission Print in Digbeth, there will also be three shows at The Mockingbird – see more information below:
