The Laughter Factory's May gig promises big laughs in Abu Dhabi

It’s a safe bet that most Abu Dhabi residents have thought the phrase ‘life doesn’t get any better than this’ on many occasions.

Whether you’re enjoying an incredible brunch, sunbathing on the Corniche or partying at Yas Marina, we’ve all felt very smug about living in this fantastic city from time to time. But the phrase is also the title of Laughter Factory’s next gig, and it certainly looks like being one of the best nights out of the month.

The tour is taking over the stage at the Park Rotana on May 1, featuring comedians Daliso Chaponda, Dana Alexander and George Zach.

You might know Chaponda from his stint on Britain’s Got Talent in 2017, where even famously tough judge Simon Cowell was won over by his charm.

After making it through to the final, he went on to create his own BBC Radio 4 series Citizen of Nowhere and also appear on popular TV shows like Unspun with Matt Forde, The News Quiz, The Now Show, and The Apprentice: You’re Fired. His fame has led him to perform around the world at numerous comedy festivals in great cities such as Edinburgh, Melbourne, Singapore, and Cape Town.

The fearless and refreshing Dana Alexander will also treating us to her side-splittingly funny set. Known as one of the strongest acts on both the UK and Canadian comedy circuits, her performance will certainly be unforgettable.

Alexander has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on numerous occasions and featured on BBC programs like Russell Howard's Good News and The Culture Show. With a style that’s described as 'smart, irreverent and revolutionary', we can’t wait to see what this very funny lady has to offer.

Finally, Greek-Geordie comedian George Zach will be sharing his hilarious perspective on life.Thoroughly dedicated to live comedy, Zach has put on entertaining performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and across various countries throughout Europe and Asia.  He has also written for and appeared on BBC One's This Week and The One Show.

One things for sure, you’ll come out of this gig with your cheeks and sides aching from laughing so much.
