GREENWICH COMEDY FESTIVAL at the National Maritime Museum

The 14th Greenwich Comedy Festival returns to the National Maritime Museum this year from 14-18 September – and what a feast of fun is on offer.


The multiple award-winning headline acts represent the cream (and the scream) of standup from the British Isles: Stewart Lee (above), Frankie Boyle, Milton Jones, Dylan Moran, Alan Davies, Simon Amstell and David O’Doherty.


But the supporting cast is amazing, too, including such luminaries of laughter as Ed Byrne, Reginald D Hunter, Sindhu Vee, Kerry Godliman (below) and Rhys James.


And the hosts for the shows are all brilliant stand-ups in their own right – Ian Smith, Chloe Petts, Andrew Maxwell, Stephen K Amos and John Robins.

Seven shows, including two each on the Saturday and Sunday, are scheduled across five days in the outdoor all-seater enclosure in the fabulous grounds of the Royal Museums Greenwich complex. The full line-up is:

Wednesday 7.30 - Simon Amstell, Mike Wozniak, Celya AB, Ivo Graham, host Chloe Petts


Thursday 7.30 - Stewart Lee, Isy Suttie, Sophie Duker, Josh Pugh, host Ian Smith


Friday 7.30 - Milton Jones, Reginald D Hunter, Fatiha el-Ghorri, Rosie Jones, host Andrew Maxwell


Saturday 4pm - Alan Davies, Ed Byrne (below), Sikisa, Kerry Godliman, host Stephen K Amos


Saturday 7.30 David O’Doherty, Brett Goldstein, Esther Manito, Rhys James, host John Robins
