Tomorrow, we are launching SatireDay with 15 terrific events all poking fun at life and the uncertain times we face in this mad, mad world. Belfast is noted for its sardonic wit so this theme fits much of our programme including the shows tomorrow featuring the Rubberbandits, Michelle & Arlene, Bill Hicks: Relentless, our Kate Bush dance parody and Alternative Bedtime Stories - to name but a few! Don't forget our conference in the Mac will also explore the local comedy scene including humour and conflict. So join us in having a laugh and satirising the powers that shape our world.

Alternative Bedtime Stories

by the Makey Uppers

ACCIDENTAL THEATRE, 12-13 SHAFTESBURY SQUARE

Just back after an successful at the Edinburgh Fringe, it was one of the hits of last year’s Belfast Comedy Festival.

Once upon a time, two fair maidens dragged fairy tales kicking and screaming into the 21st century in this sharp and original review of all things ‘happily ever after’. Follow the trail of breadcrumbs to see your favourite bedtime stories poked with a big stick before being tossed into a cauldron with physical comedy and biting wit.

Sample the results. They may not taste as sweet as you remember. Sorcha Shanahan (Edinburgh Comedy Panel Prize Sprit of the Fringe 2016) and Gemma Walker’s topical, hilarious, relevant and strikingly different show. Top 10 – Belfast Comedy Festival.

“An utterly hilarious show that left my jaws still aching from laughter for days after. Skillfully written, it expertly weaves an important and thought provoking message through an avalanche of laughter, fun and outstanding comedic performances. An absolute must-see. I can’t wait to see it again!”
