The first ever Brighton Comedy Garden takes place in a Big Top in Preston Park, later this month, with each show at the five-night event starring one of the finest comedians of the moment.
Ticket-holders will be treated to a meticulously curated bill at each show.
Comedy heavyweights such as observational maestro Ed Byrne, laughter-master Stephen K Amos and ventriloquist queen Nina Conti feature alongside fast-rising stars such as The Mash Report's viral sensation Rachel Parris and Taskmaster's Phil Wang.
There's also alt-comedy heroes like Rose d"Or winner Bridget Christie and Alan Partridge"s side-kick Tim Key plus exciting breakthrough talent including Edinburgh Comedy Award champ Rose Matafeo and the brilliantly mischievous Rosie Jones plus even more unbeatable entertainers.
The festival is produced by sibling team Will Briggs
and Cass Randolph
from 57 Festivals.
For the last decade they've been running similar events in Greenwich, London and Bristol.
Co-Producer Cass Randolph says:
"It's fantastic to see tickets flying out to these shows, especially as this is our first year coming to Brighton.
"We know we've got the best line-ups around it feels good to see thousands of others share that same sense of humour.
"We're incredibly pleased with the response so far and we're sure this positivity will carry on through to the shows."
Will and Cass grew up steeped in alternative comedy thanks to their notorious stepfather, Malcolm Hardee, the infamous comedy promoter and exhibitionist.
"We've always had Brighton in mind as a dream location for what we do and now, with our events in Greenwich and Bristol hitting their stride, we feel it's the right time to bring Brighton a piece of the action."
"Brighton is famous for its vibrant arts and festivals scene, and we hope to add even more quality to that.
"Perhaps now more than ever it's good to be reminded of the absurdity and humour in life and our acts have some of the most brilliantly absurd minds in the country."
