About

The Wells Comedy Festival in association with Brothers Cider started in 2015, to celebrate 10 years of the city's Long Paws Comedy Club.

The festival brings some of the best comedians in the country to the heart of Somerset all in one jam-packed weekend. Previous acts have included Stewart Lee, Omid Djalili, Tommy Tiernan, Sara Pascoe and Mark Steel.

2017's festival will be our biggest and best yet, taking place May 26-28 2017. See What’s On.
