Mon 22 Dec 2014 We’re pleased to be able to announce that our headline act for the 2015 Derby Comedy Festival will be Jimmy Carr with his hit Funny Business show!Jimmy’s been described as ‘the hardest working man in comedy’. Which, let’s face facts, is not that impressive. It’s like being the ‘tallest dwarf’ or the ‘healthiest Glaswegian’. Really not that big a deal. Funny Business is Jimmy’s brand new stand up show. Audiences should come for the witty and incisive musings on the human condition and stay for the knob gags.The announcement of Jimmy as headliner for the festival is really good news as his show in last year’s festival had to be cancelled due to the closure of the Assembly Rooms.Jimmy will be performing at the Derby Arena on Fri 10 Jul and there will be a 48 hour pre-sale for all those who had tickets to see him at last year’s festival. Tickets are on general sale from 24 Dec 2014

Fresh from the Mitch Benn is the 37th Beatle tour and Edinburgh Fringe, comedy musician Mitch Benn is kicking off the bill with his renowned musical delights and quips commonly found on Radio 4’s The Now Show.

Much in demand and a comedy circuit sensation, her unique brand of gag-driven chat will make audiences laugh out loud.
Hailing from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, Craig Murray has shared the comedy stage with the likes of Harry Hill and Stewart Lee. An instant crowd pleaser with his mock-confrontational style he’s bringing his impressive stage presence to the Underground to round up a night of glee.
