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.

Belfast comes alive with the sound of laughter this weekend with a whopping 26 events across the city. This is your last chance to experience the biggest comedy arts festival in Ireland, with lots of stand up, sketches, dance, musical comedy, theatre, comic art, film, kids workshops and even a conference looking at the comedy scene in NI.

‘Choices’ is a series of comedy sketches that looks at the day-to-day and surreal problems that life can, and sometime does, throw at us – and examines how we deal with them …whether we laugh or whether we cry …or whether we laugh and cry and get hysterical …or run for the hills …or sit down calmly with a nice wee cup of herbal tea …but then that really does depend on the situation … and the person who is standing behind you…!
