And with more top comedy greats still to be announced Jericho Comedy’s Oxford Castle Comedy Festival is already taking shape.
Being held from Monday 31st May – Sunday 6th June 2021 in the outdoor castle courtyard with two shows per evening and 14 shows planned across the week, seats will be socially distanced in the outdoor castle courtyard.
Jericho Comedy’s Alex Farrow can’t wait: “This year has been incredibly challenging for comedy clubs, but things are starting to look more positive in 2021, and we’re delighted to be bringing such an amazing line up to the Castle.
“The Pandemic has pushed us to try new formats and to work with new venues, whether performing to audiences in cars, boats, or in the courtyard of a medieval castle”
During the pandemic Jericho Comedy has performed drive-in shows, on punts on the River Cherwell for a ‘live-stream’ as well as making and selling their own Christmas crackers. Farrow has even been gigging to small crowds of 5 with his bat themed comedy safari ‘Bat Chat’, one of the first live performances allowed in 2021.
