Birmingham Comedy Festival02 October 2012

Birmimgham Comedy Festival kicks off this weekend and runs from the 5-14 October.

Highlights include shows by John Bishop, The Hairy Bikers, Seann Walsh and punk poet John Cooper Clarke.

Comedy in the Dark at The Electric sounds particularly intriguing- the show was a sell out success at the Edinburgh Fringe.
