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.

Nuke It From Orbit

nuke it from orbit – Belfast Comedy Festival 2017

A Geek Fuelled Comedy Panel Show


‘Nuke it from Orbit’ is a brand new comedy panel show about all things nerdy; Marvel to DC, Star Wars to Trek via Gate. Various games about various thrones. This is a show not just for the die-hards but also for those who don’t know they’re Romulans from their Remans. Two teams of top local comedians will battle it out to see who is the geekiest of them all!

The show is created by your host Peter E Davidson (Guns N’ Rose, Edinburgh Fringe, Masons Comedy) and team captain Bobby Best (Badly Cut Fringe, Big Tickle, Comic City Podcast). There will be live stand up comedy, audience interaction, spot prizes and then the podcast recording itself which will be available after the gig for all attendees to download and enjoy!

So in the words of Missy Elliott herself… “Get your geek on! Huh, Get your geek on! Huh, get you get your get your geek on!”
