An all-new St Albans Comedy Garden promises the ultimate remedy this summer with five nights of stupendous stand-up comedy
The event will star Dara O’Briain, Sara Pascoe, Alan Davies, Tom Allen, Aisling Bea, Rob Beckett, Josh Widdicombe and many more in the glorious surroundings of Verulamium Park.
From Wednesday, July 28 to Sunday, August 1 comedy-lovers from St Albans and beyond will be treated to a dazzling array of stand-up superstars.
This series of magnificent mixed-bill shows will be presented in an open-air theatre set in St Alban’s beautiful Verulamium Park.
The comedy extravaganza will be brim full with 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.
In response to the pandemic the Comedy Garden has been specially designed to reflect the Government’s Roadmap, with added flexibility should the event need to be adapted to suit current guidelines.
All shows will take place in a fully-seated open-air theatre with tickets sold in multiples of two, these key features are designed to ensure a smooth transition should social distancing need to be introduced across the event.
If necessary the theatre-style seating will be transformed into socially-distanced seating plots and walk-up bars and street-food stalls will be replaced with a deliver-to-seat drink and snack service.
This new St Albans event is the latest venture from the London-based comedy event company run by sibling-team Will Briggs and Cass Randolph.
The pair have spent the last decade building a reputation for delivering meticulous comedy programming in boutique-festival settings.
Cass said: “The live industry has had a tough time of late and so we feel very lucky to have been able to reimagine our events to suit these challenging times, and we’re especially proud to be introducing this brand new event.”
Will adds: “There’s no doubt that everyone deserves some excellent live entertainment and we can’t wait to bring exactly that to our new St Albans audience. We’re working closely with the local council and our suppliers to make sure we deliver an event that is safe and enjoyable for everyone – and above all very funny!”
