GO Comedy In Stratford-Upon-Avon

Comedy in Stratford Upon Avon When it comes to comedy in Stratford-Upon-Avon there seems to be very few venues and stand-up acts willing to take on the humour of Shakespeare.

So if you're looking for a laugh or two then you should check out what's on at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre [map]. Each season features at least one of Shakespeare's comedies that should give your ribs a little tickle.

However, you will also find some stand-up comedians willing to do battle with the Bard on his home ground in the autumn, as the Royal Shakespeare Company puts on a Week of Laughter at the Swan Theatre [map]. Pub landlord Al Murray, Paul Merton and Jimmy Carr are just some of the acts that have appeared in Stratford as a modern alternative to Shakespeare.

Alternatively, keep an eye on what's going on at the Cox's Yard [map]. This multipurpose venue has something for everyone, from live music and party nights to a pub for those who just fancy a drink and a chat. Amongst the variety of entertainment on offer, comedy features regularly with stand-up performers and funny theatre pieces finding their way onto the billing.

If you're willing to travel a little further afield then the Warwick Arts Centre [map] has some of the best comedic talent appearing on stage for your pleasure. In the coming year you could find yourself laughing louder and harder than ever before to big name acts such as Harry Hill and Jack Dee.
