The Machynlleth Comedy Festival

The Machynlleth Comedy Festival will celebrate its eighth year in 2017 and is held over the first May bank holiday each year. 

More information about the Comedy Festival can be found here, but in short it is a weekend of stand up comedy (together with some supporting acts and activities) held in various venues around Machynlleth, from smaller intimate venues catering for about 20, to larger audiences of about 200. 

The Comedy Festival is building in popularity and reputation and for many comedians is used as a run-up to the Edinburgh Festival later in the year. Notable appearances at the Comedy Festival have included Josh Widdicombe, Ed Gamble, Ivo Graham, Joe Lycett and Rob Deering.
