LAUGHTERAMA presented by heycar, is Manchester’s all-new comedy festival, landing in Castlefield Bowl from 21-25th September 2022.  


Comedy superstars like Netflix’s JAMES ACASTER, the legendary DYLAN MORAN, British Comedy Award winner AISLING BEA, Taskmaster’s PHIL WANG, observational master JOSH WIDDICOMBE, the Last Leg’s ROSIE JONES, the inimitable DANIEL KITSON plus many more incredible acts are set to light up the night.


This five-night festival combines astounding multi-act shows with a first class selection at the bars and the very best from Manchester’s street-food scene. 


Other unmissable acts include Edinburgh Comedy Award winner ROSE MATAFEO, one-liner king MILTON JONES, lo-fi hero DAVID O’DOHERTY, the Mash Report’s NISH KUMAR, homegrown Manchester talent including STEPHEN BAILEY and JOSH JONES alongside fast rising newcomers CELYA AB, FATIHA EL-GHORRI and HUGE DAVIES.


Each show presents a compilation of the biggest names in stand-up alongside the brightest new talents guaranteeing comedy fans from Manchester and beyond a seriously good time in the heart of the city.


This is a brand-new venture from the sibling team behind a series of successful comedy festival’s running annually across London and the South. 


For the last fifteen years Will Briggs and Cass Randolph have been delivering their signature blend of meticulous comedy programming in boutique-festival settings to sell-out crowds. The pair are now looking forward to arriving in Manchester. 


Will says “We’ve been dreaming of bringing this festival to Manchester for a long time now, the city should absolutely have a stand-out event showcasing the wealth of comedy talent around at the moment. There’s a golden age for comedy right now, with so many platforms to enjoy amazing content. Many of our acts have their own TV or podcast series, but nothing beats live, and we can't wait to put these acts in front of a Manchester crowd. We already know the shows are going to be electric!”


This year’s event is partnered with heycar. Chief Commercial Officer Karen Hilton said: “With this year’s inaugural LAUGHTERAMA in Castlefield Bowl, it’s shaping up to be an incredible, feel-good summer. We have so much laughter to catch up on after the last few years and I can’t think of a better way to do it. The line-up is truly world-class and we’re particularly looking forward to seeing the incredible James Acaster, and my personal favourite, Aisling Bea in action. heycar is honoured to be sponsoring this incredible event and we can’t wait to see everyone in Manchester this September!”
