The festive season is almost upon us and The Laughter Factory have just announced a mega line-up for December with a debut from Canadian powerhouse Dana Alexander, as well as Chris Kent and Geoff Norcott.

Hitting the Park Rotana on Wednesday, December 6 following rave reviews and several award nominations, including Best Comic and Best International Act at the Chortle and Black Comedy Awards, Alexander has appeared on TV shows like Russell Howard's Good News. She is currently one of the hottest emerging young comedians, and a regular fixture on the Canadian comedy circuit.

Joining her in waving off a great year of comedy here in the capital, Kent is an Irish comedian who has shared the stage with Bill Burr, Dylan Moran and David O’ Doherty.

And last, but absolutely not least, Norcott has been touring his successful 2016 Edinburgh show Conswervative around the UK, and has had a flurry of TV appearances, including 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Question Time and the Daily Politics. In a minority as a right wing comedian, his satirical comment has also found its way into national publications like The Sunday Telegraph. The Guardian called his comedy “A right laugh”.

Wed Dec 6, 8pm. Park Rotana, Khalifa Park Road. For tickets visit www.thelaughterfactory.com.
