Stand-up comedy in Abu Dhabi
All-star Laughter Factory line-up is one of its most diverse yet Discuss this article
If there’s an event in Abu Dhabi with stand-up sets as side-splittingly funny and as brutally honest as The Laughter Factory, we have yet to find it. After two decades, the comedy club is still going strong and bringing some of the biggest names to the region.
It’s built up a reputation for playing host to up-and-coming stars who then go on to achieve worldwide fame – including the likes of Michael McIntyre, Dara O’Briain and Jason Manford – so don’t be put off if you don’t know the names on the bill because next week they’ll probably have their own TV show.

Reality fans might recognise this up-and-coming Londoner from I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here NOW! As charming as he is hilarious, his sets discuss growing up an immigrant in East London, working in Harrods and discovering his Nigerian identity.
No stranger to The Laughter Factory stage, Canadian Peter White’s universally relatable sets about the life of a 21st-century man have made him a star at home and abroad, with slots on Comedy Central’s Comedy Store Live and at Montreal’s Just for Laughs festival.
