The Laughter Factory is gearing up for a special tour of the region featuring one of the stand-out comedy troupes from Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
August’s month-long annual comedy bash in Scotland is regarded as one of the world’s leading festivals to celebrate the art of rib-tickling, and one of the UK’s top improv troupes will be coming to the UAE and Bahrain for three gigs in September for a show that’s bound to remind anyone who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s of one of the era’s great TV shows.
The Noise Next Door have sold out 11 shows at Edinburgh Fringe, and will have to rely on their wits and off-the-cuff comedy when they bring to life classic comedy TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
Taking place nightly between Wednesday September 25 and Friday 27, the troupe will first visit Bahrain’s The British Club, before moving on to the Mövenpick Hotel Dubai JBR, and ending in the UAE capital for a gig in Abu Dhabi’s Park Rotana.
Tickets will set you back just Dhs180 for each show, and you can book your tickets at www.thelaughterfactory.com for an act that’s appeared on live BBC and ITV shows in the UK, as well as alongside comedians like Michael McIntyre, Al Murray and Harry Hill.
The full list of shows is as follows:
Wednesday September 25, 8pm – The British Club, Bahrain
Thursday September 26, 9pm – Mövenpick Hotel Dubai JBR
Friday September 27, 9pm – Park Rotana, Abu Dhabi
Meanwhile, before all that, there’s plenty of time to get your tickets to the next tour from The Laughter Factory, which has got four nights and six shows in Dubai through September.
