As lockdown eases over the coming months, we are delighted to share some fantastic shows that are set to take place this year thanks to Comical Entertainment.
Comical Entertainment - led by James Maunder and Andrew Smallridge - is dedicated to bringing the top names of comedy and theatre to audiences in Launceston, Paignton and Plymouth.
The past 12 months have proved difficult for the arts sector, with little funding support and lack of opportunity to gain revenue due to the pandemic, but now Comical Entertainment are bouncing back and have a huge lineup of shows to come this year and early 2022.
James and Andrew hope that people will be keen to return to venues to support their favourite comedians and artists, after spending much of the past year within the four walls of our homes.
Here’s a list of just some of the shows due to take place over the next 12 months, with many of them set to wow audiences in Launceston.
