News: Top Comedy Tours For 2018

If the live comedy bubble is about to burst nobody has told comedy's big guns yet. Comedy tours seem to be getting larger and longer all the time. Even smaller Edinburgh shows have a much longer stage-life than they ever had before. 

2018 is going to be an interesting year for stand-up. It should have been dominated by Peter Kay but with his mega-tour now cancelled fans may be looking for other shows to fill a Kay-shaped hole. So here to help you is Beyond The Joke's essential guide to the biggest comedy gigs of 2018. Just click on the names for dates, details and ticket links.  If there isn't something here to make you laugh then check your pulse. You are probably dead.
