WREXHAM'S Comedy Festival returns to the town next weekend for a line up of unmissable performances.

Wrexham plays host to Wrexham Comedy Festival next weekend on Friday, November 3 until Sunday 5.

Wrexham Comedy Festival will be produced and delivered by Theatr Clwyd who run William Aston Hall, in partnership with Wrexham AFC and The Maesgwyn.

On November 3, Best of Wales Comedy Gala will bring together some of Wales’ finest comics at William Aston Hall.

Acts at the festival include Daman Bamrah with his show Salmon Camera who has spent a great deal of his life being confused!

Mark Watson brings his show Search (4 Nov) to William Aston Hall. Both a dad and a kid himself, around the midpoint of his life, the Taskmaster star and multiple award-winner - now also famous as one-third of YouTube cult sensation No More Jockeys - returns. He’ll consider the search for meaning that we’re all on, with or without Google.

Celya AB is new to the Comedy Festival lineup, bringing her show Second Rodeo (4 Nov) to Wrexham University TV Studio.

As a child, all she wanted was to be an adult. Now she's at the table, she wants out. Following her acclaimed, sell-out debut hour, Celya returns - expect tales of romance, a hologram, and a near-death experience in Thorpe Park.

Comedy Translates (5 Nov) is a bi-lingual comedy show like no other that comes to the Centenary Lounge – Wrexham AFC. While comedians perform in Welsh, the audience will hear an English translation. Live!

Only a couple of minor technical hitches, and due to being blacklisted by every translator in the land, the translations will instead be provided by the comedians themselves.


And finally wrapping up the festival at William Aston Hall is the Socially Distant Sports Bar (5 Nov). Join Elis James, Mike Bubbins and Steff Garrero as they take you inside the world of sport and way beyond.

It's a Comedy Podcast about Sports, but you don't have to like Sports to LOVE it. This event will feature Wrexham AFC Executive Director, Humphrey Ker.

Other comedians coming to William Aston Hall in November include Ed Byrne who will bring his show Tragedy Plus Time (17 Nov) as he tests this formula by mining the most tragic events in his life for laughs.

Theatr Clwyd’s comedy club comes to William Aston Hall on November 26. William Aston Comedy Club sees Nick Helm, Amy Gledhill, Josh Pugh, Brennan Reece and Seeta Wrightson for a hilarious night of comedy with tickets from just £10.
