Liverpool Comedy Festival Crowd


The Comedy Trust offer a fantastic opportunity to join our family via our annual Liverpool Comedy Festival  Sponsorship opportunities for the Liverpool Comedy Festival allow you to position yourself in the public eye and communicate  with  highly desirable and targeted audience in a unique environment. In our 16th year, the Festival is a 17 day event in venues across Liverpool City Centre and Merseyside. We've grown in size and stature since 2002 and are now one of the most respected comedy events in the UK. Our regional reputation has risen remarkably since 2002 with audiences growing in number each year. We re-branded the Festival in 2014 and last year saw us gain more exposure than ever before with media partners Juice FM (now Capital) and Liverpool Echo. 

Our model is unique to other comedy festivals world-wide in that we comprise of: international comedians well-known in the UK, high profile acts on the national circuit, local comedians and open mic nights, comedy theatre and new commissions, post Edinburgh tours, unique events such as Drink Up Stand Up and our Comedy Bus, year-round community and education programmes, involvement from local schools and youth groups, discussions and debates, association with a major comedy venue and theatre The Royal Court Theatre, events for the local business community and a strong focus on health and well-being.​


We aim to become the most successful and popular comedy festival in the UK. We regularly host the biggest worldwide artists through to 'open mic' nights at locations across the city. We generate approx 25,000 visitors per year with a majority of visitors coming from within a 40 mile radius.
