January is all about planning exciting things to look forward to. It’s one of the things that makes this cold and rainy month bearable, and one thing that is sure to bring some sunshine into your life is a comedy festival!


From America’s Ryan Reynolds and Canada’s Katherine Ryan, to Ireland's Graham Norton and home soil's Nish Kumar and Joe Lycett, Just For Laughs London is the four-day comedy festival hosting some of the biggest names in the game.

From 2nd-5th March this year, The O2 in London will welcome comedy stars from across the world, as well as a wonderful audience, to enjoy various stand-up comedy sets, ‘In Conversation With’ talks, and variety shows.

Reynolds and James Acaster were amongst the first celebrities to be announced for Just For Laughs London, and the festival has just confirmed Sue Perkins and Ed Gamble amongst other comedians, plus family favourites like Eurovision Song Contest runner-up Sam Ryder.

There will be commentary throughout from Kumar, Aisling Bea (This Way Up star and creator), and BBC Radio 1 presenter Greg James, which all is sure to have you belly-laughing.
