Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
The first ever Shrewsbury International Comedy Festival (SICF) is happening on one BIG weekend in July 2017.
Providing opportunities for top circuit acts to preview their Edinburgh Fringe Festival material, and giving a very select crowd of comedy fans an unmissable chance to see them, the festival will feature 16 performances, across 4 venues in Shrewsbury.
COMING TO THE OLD POST OFFICE*
FRIDAY 21 JULY
8PM - 9PM DANNY McLOUGHLIN WORK IN PROGRESS
9.30PM - 10.30PM ADAM ROWE UNBEARABLE
Adam Rowe is unbearable. Self indulgent, arrogant, and prides himself on an ability to make absolutely anything about himself. When bad stuff happens in his life and the life of people around him, his immediate reaction is to write a joke about it. But just how far can he take that? This show is where we'll find out. Join Adam for a brand new hour of his trademark: no holds barred, heavily opinionated and brutally honest, soul bearing stand-up.
SATURDAY 22 JULY
3PM - 4PM MILO McCABE
TROY HAWKE IN 'THE TALENTED MR HAWKE'
TROY HAWKE ('mad comic genius' Scotsman) is finding politics everywhere he goes… in the Poundland, down at the Bingo… in his local nightclub… they are suddenly inescapable… but what to do with them? Which way to swing? Join Troy as he gets right to the pulsing dirty heart of every major issue that faces us in this barbaric dystopian present.
6.45PM - 7.45PM TOM WRIGGLESWORTH
WORK IN PROGRESS
10.30PM - 11.30PM TONY COWARDS DAFT PUN
If you're a fan of puns and are up all night for good fun, prepare to get lucky as TONY COWARDS, 'The Punosaurus' (List), brings his new show, DAFT PUN to audiences worldwide. If laughter is the best medicine, then Tony is a veritable pharmacy of comedy.
SUNDAY 23 JULY
