Crouch End Comedy Festival
Crouch End Comedy Festival


The first Crouch End Comedy Festival took place in October 2015. It was a fantastic, record-breaking week and thanks to everyone who performed and came to see shows at Downstairs at the Kings Head, Hornsey Town Hall, ArtHouse and Earl Haig Hall.

In total over 60 acts appeared and we were Critic’s Choice in Time Out

Winners of the Boom-Tish! Best New Act 2015 competition were the oddly named but extremely funny sketch duo BS Thoughts Out Loud featuring Sian Hutchinson and Barry Glennon.
