Now in its third year, SHREWSBURY INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL has become a staple of the town's entertainment calendar and the Gala Show has established itself as the MUST SEE show of the year.
Once described as "like a whole series of Live at the Apollo in one night" the Gala brings the curtain down on a weekend of comedy with the biggest names on the circuit.
The creation of Perrier Award nominated sketch comedian Dan Renton Skinner, Angelos Epithemiou is a former burger van owner who has broken into showbusiness. His big break came in 2009 when he joined Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer's Shooting Stars firstly as a regular team member then replacing George Dawes as scorekeeper. Not to be missed!
Prepare to be wowed once more by the incredible talents of Rob Broderick AKA ABANDOMAN, the hip-hop, improv genius! He loves it here and we love him!
Two time Emmy nominated South African comedian Loyiso Gola performs in Shrewsbury for the very first time and will truly put the "International" in the Shrewsbury International Comedy Festival. As well as a Netflix special for his stand up, Loyiso is the creator and presenter of the satirical Late Nite News show on South African TV... and boasts over a million Twitter followers. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see a truly global act.
The former winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award, Irish Comedian of the Year and Best International Act at the Sydney Comedy Festival brings his particular brand of musical whimsy as the Gala brings the curtain down on a weekend of top comedy.
