COMEDY CHAOS TOUCHES DOWN IN THE LAND OF SMILES!
The Magners International Comedy Festival returns to Thailand bigger, better and
funnier, for a second year. From March 23rd - 25th, 2017 not only Bangkok, but also
in Pattaya, Phuket and Hua Hin will be laughing! Organized internationally by Magic
Rock events, and co-presented locally by The Comedy Club Bangkok, (presenters of the
likes of Jimmy Carr and Eddie Izzard), this is set to be the best year yet! So get ready for a
sidesplitting journey with tears of laughter and a fresh batch of incredible talent from
around the world!!
This March will see more amazing comedians from the UK, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand,
Malaysia, and the USA descend on Thailand for more cutting-edge comedy. The Comedy
Club Bangkok, Altitude Bar at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit, Tavern by the Sea at The
Amari Hotel in Pattaya, The Red Piano in Hua Hin and Underwood Art Factory in Phuket will
all play host to these international standup comics, with comedy sponsor Magners Cider
ensuring audiences have a seriously good laugh.
From Glasgow, Brighton, Boston and now Thailand, Magners Irish Cider is committed to
bringing laughter into people’s lives. “Magners Irish Cider is thrilled to be the title sponsor of
the Magners International Comedy Festival. We have a long association with comedy in
many markets around the world, particularly the UK. Being 100% imported from Ireland
and a world-class brand, Magners is very much looking forward to bringing some top-notch
comedy to Thailand,” said Andrew Herd, Marketing Manager (APAC) of C&C International.
Not to be missed acts include the off-beat and outrageous Martin Mor, who tours with
Frankie Boyle; Dana Alexander from Russell Howard’s ‘Good News’; Comedy Network
comedian Lars Callieou; Dan La Morte, possibly our hottest newcomer; Andre King, one of
the biggest Kiwi comics; and, Matthew Giffen, whose show “Cocaine and Potatoes” went
down so well we just had to bring him back to see what he would come up with this year!
As part of the Magners International Comedy Festival, the search has been on to find the
comedy stars of tomorrow. In association with LOL events out of Kuala Lumpur, and The
Comedy Club Bangkok, comedians have the chance to make a name for themselves and a
shot to win cash prizes in local competitions across the region.
