Top UK comedian coming to the UAE

Off the back of Dubai Opera hosting its first comedy gala night with UK comic Alan Davies, the venue has announced that UK comedian Josh Widdicombe will be coming to Dubai for a one-night performance later this year.

Known for his co-hosting and sketch material for the UK’s BAFTA award-winning comedy show The Last Leg, Widdicombe will be coming to town on Friday September 13.

The comic, from the UK’s West Country, is also a regular on the BBC’s Live at The Apollo, Have I Got News For You and A League of Their Own – the sports comedy panel show where he’s frequently used as a metaphorical punching bag.

He also hosts the cult 90s football podcast Quickly Kevin, Will He Score? and had his own sitcom, Josh. 

Widdicombe will be joined by Welsh comic Lloyd Langford, Maisie Adam (a regular on 8 Out Of 10 Cats), while Ed Gamble (Mock The Week) will be hosting the evening.

Tickets are now on sale at, priced at Dhs150 and there’s 20 percent discount on VIP and platinum tickets until Tuesday July 2.
