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.

Kids Clown Workshop

Kids Clown Workshop – Belfast Comedy Festival 2017


What it is that makes us laugh? How we can be funny? It is not about big shoes, make up and squirty flowers….

Join Jude and Gemma and learn the essential skills of being a clown. This practical clown workshop is for all the little aspiring performers who will learn about the pleasure of being ridiculous in a space, about moving from one flop to the next, about being always happy and optimistic playing before an audience.
