Seemingly a sister festival to Dublin's Bulmer's International Comedy Festival, Magner's Big Tickle Comedy Festival in Derry had almost as impressive a line up. Running concurrently from Friday 5th to Sunday 14th of September, Northern Ireland's largest Comedy Festival is back with more than twenty comedians over ten days for the biggest, brightest and funniest Big Tickle yet. US comedian Rich Hall headline as his redneck character Otis Lee Crenshaw, with other major acts including The Panel's controversial Dubliner Andrew Maxwell, mini-keyboard playing David O'Doherty as well as Ardal O'Hanlon, Kevin McAleer, Colin Murphy, Reginald D. Hunter and Jimeoin. Edinburgh and Beyond presents four of Britain's finest comic talents, Dan Atkinson, Glenn Wool, Isy Suttie and Joe Wilkinson together, fresh from their Edinburgh Festival shows. Tickets and more information can be found on the festival's website.
