London's greatest comedy festival finally returns, bringing the spirit of the Fringe to Shoreditch!

ARGComFest is a weekend comedy festival of Fringe previews and work-in-progress shows that takes place every July. The festival brings an attentively curated programme of sixty comedians — from big name TV favourites to up-and-coming newcomers — to the labyrinthine settings of Shoreditch Town Hall.

For a single (and ridiculously good value) ticket price, you get access a whole weekend of comedy. We sell day or weekend tickets with audience members free to see whichever acts they like — just like a music festival.

In 2016, ARGComFest became the first major comedy festival to have a gender balanced programme and it continues to champion diversity and representation within comedy.

This year’s festival will include creator of Channel 4’s Trip Hazard, the raucous and rip-roaringly funny Rosie Jones; reigning Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Jordan Brookes; silly, sexy, savage stand-up from Taskmaster titan Sophie Duker; and star of Netflix’s Philly Philly Wang Wang — it’s Phil Wang!

The weekend will also include three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Josie Long; star of Mock The Week, QI, Late Night Mash and her Amazon Prime comedy special Olga Koch; and the visceral, real and achingly brave Colin Hoult with the final outing of Anna Mann

There’ll be stand-up from the host of BBC Sounds’ Wheel of Misfortune Alison Spittle, sketch from creators of Radio 4’s SoundbleedTarot, and jokes about skinny jeans, learning Welsh and white supremacy from All Killa No Filla’s Kiri Pritchard-McLean. Plus numerous Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees including Glenn Moore, Jess Fostekew and Mat Ewins.

Plus, stand-up from Erika Ehler, Garrett Millerick
(Best Show Nominee 2022 - Leicester Comedy Festival), Harriet Kemsley (Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats does Countdown), Isy Suttie (Dobby in Peep Show), and Jack Barry (Jack in Feel Good (Netflix)),

Also joining the line-up are Jen Ives, Nick Helm, Rajiv Karia (Lazy Susan (BBC Three) and Comedy Central Live), Rhys James, Rob Auton and Sara Barron (Live at the Apollo & Would I Lie to You). AND MORE to be announced.

Plus this year, for the first time ever, ARGComFest presents The Friday Night Show — a one-off spectacular featuring an all-star line-up. For more details and tickets click here.
