Spokeswoman Cass Randolph said: “Heralding the return of live comedy, stars such as Sara Pascoe, Dara Ó Briain, Alan Davies Aisling Bea, Tom Allen, Nish Kumar, Josh Widdicombe, Sindhu Vee and many more will be performing at this year’s special edition open-air comedy extravaganza set in the glorious surroundings of Preston Park.

“Tickets are on sale now for this stupendous series of mixed-bill shows featuring the multi-award-winning Sara Pascoe, the glorious Dara O’Briain, observational wizard Josh Widdicombe, the stupendous Alan Davies, riotous Tom Allen and Rose d’Or-winning Nish Kumar to name but a few.

“Each show is bursting with incredible acts featuring the very best names in stand-up with Netflix star Phil Wang, Taskmaster’s Jamali Maddix, the undisputed queen of ventriloquism Nina Conti, podcast heroes Ed Gamble and John Robins, award-winning Sindhu Vee alongside fast-rising breakthrough talent like Brighton resident Maisie Adam and the brilliantly funny Darren Harriot plus many, many more – all guaranteeing some much-needed uplifting hilarity for 2021.

“Arriving on the scene in summer 2019, the Brighton Comedy Garden enjoyed a hugely successful first year with thousands of comedy fans flocking to the festival. The follow-up edition was sadly one of the many events cancelled last year amid the pandemic, but this summer the Comedy Garden is back and brighter than ever.

“Ticket-holders who came to the inaugural event will notice a few changes this year. The event has been specially redesigned to reflect the Government’s Roadmap with added flexibility to introduce social distancing if needed.

“Due to the pandemic, this year’s Comedy Garden will take place outdoors. The traditional Big Top tent has been swapped for a fully seated open-air theatre, with all shows presented on an outdoor stage and tickets sold in multiples of two. These changes are designed to ensure a smooth transition should the organisers need to introduce social distancing across the event.”

Cass added: “We were heartbroken to have to cancel last year’s event. We were really looking forward to returning especially after such a strong first year. But everything is in front of us now and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have been able to reimagine our event to suit these challenging times.”

“Alongside the star-studded line up ticket-holders will be enjoying a tantalising range of pop-up bars serving craft beers, summer-styled cocktails and more to wash down tasty morsels from the leading lights of the local street-food scene, all set in a boutique-festival setting on the leafy lawns of Preston Park, overlooking the thumping heart of Brighton.

“This year’s event is all set to be a rib-tickling remedy to the past year, so get your tickets now and be part of this year’s magnificent Brighton Comedy Garden!”
