Comedy Festival


Upon the 12th and 15th days of October, in the year of Our Lord 2016 and in celebration of the Forth Colchester Comedy Festival, the good citizenry of North Essex are courteously requested to join His Worshipfulness A Mayor of Colchester on this unprecedented, unrivalled and largely unwarranted excursion into the comedic history of East Anglia’s most righteous, steadfast and unremittingly ludicrous town.
Ably assisted by grovelling Town Clerk; Mister Tymperleys, and the Grand Jape Master Respondent; Timothy St. John Mycroft Young, A Mayor will, with great pomp and in no reasonable circumstance, expose the vibrant cultural heart of Colchester and make tatty jokes about it. Expect shocking truths, shocking lies and shocking leg wear…

The Corporation of Colchester takes no responsibility for the accuracy of any information imparted during the Tour, its impartiality, or its overall safety. Should any audience members unexpectedly die during the Tour His Worshipfulness assumes the right of Civic Precedence with regards to the disposal of any monies found upon their still warm bodies…
