FALMOUTH CRINGE 2024 SHOULD HAVE THEM LAUGHING IN THE AISLES IN THE TOWN IF IT TAKES PLACE IN EARLY JULY 2024. PREPARE FOR THE BEST COMEDY FESTIVAL IN CORNWALL 2024. PREPARE FOR YOUR SIDES TO SPLIT…
We can be a little thin on the ground in Cornwall when it comes to decent comedy shows. But the Falmouth Cringe 2024 festival, if it goes ahead, should more than make up for that. It isn’t yet confirmed so watch this space for all the details as they are announced but it is likely to happen in early July 2024 and then it will be all about the laughs in a fest that brings in some of the finest stand-up talent from miles around.
The 2024 Falmouth Cringe will, if it goes ahead, follow a hugely successful second festival in 2023. Organisers said it was ‘the first comedy festival of its kind in the South West’ with bucketloads of comedians and more than 1,000 people attending comedy gigs in an array of venues across Falmouth over both years.
‘More acts’ were involved in the rapidly growing festival of laughs in July 2023, according to the organisers. And they said they were ‘honoured to be hosting the final of the Cornish Comedian of the Year’ during the programme too. Plus, the team partnered with local suicide prevention charity Georgia’s Voice, which supports young women in Cornwall who have mental health concerns, throughout the festival.
Much-loved Welsh comedian, writer and five-time Chortle Award-winner Kiri Pritchard-McLean was one of the big stars to perform at the 2023 Cringe. Other famous names included Priya Hall, major British comedy talent Tim Key (pictured above), Shaparak Khorsandi, Mary O’Connell and Patrick Spicer. It was a hoot!
Six venues in Falmouth took part in 2023: The Chintz, Underland, Solskinn, Toast, The Poly and The Cornish Bank. Who knows, maybe there will be more for the 2024 festival?
Of course, all the times, dates, venues, comedians and finer details will appear on the official website once the 2024 Falmouth Cringe is announced so do click on the ‘website’ link in the ‘In Brief’ bar above to see the full programme once it’s published.
And then make sure you take a needle and thread with you to the third edition of this exciting new comedy festival in Falmouth. Why? Because your sides are likely to split at Falmouth Cringe 2024. Or, at least, you may just laugh your head off…
