The Laughter Factory celebrates ‘25 years of laughs’

The Laughter Factory comedy club has been keeping comedy fans in the
Gulf deliriously happy for a whopping 25 years. The club continues to
grow by producing funnier, more global shows that attract a younger and
more diverse audience.

In June 1996 Dubai’s entertainment scene consisted mainly of musical duos
sporting mullets and murdering ‘Hotel California’ in scruffy bars. Gail
Clough was a DJ and Duncan Jones was a drummer (in a scruffy bar). They
both wanted to watch some live comedy. Hence, the Laughter Factory was
born.

Their original home was at the Hyatt Regency in Deira. It was a unique
time in comedy history. Up and coming comedy voices were starting to
explode onto the UK circuit, names such as Russell Peters, Frankie Boyle,
Lee Mack and Dara O’Briain arrived in the 90s. The millennium brought us
Michael McIntryre, Jack Whitehall, Kevin Bridges, Mickey Flanagan,
Sarah Millican and Jason Manford. A huge portion of the successful
comics on UK TV today can trace part of their roots back to our tiny much-
loved club in the desert.

Owner Gail Clough says, “The idea that a comic has an authentic voice,
rather than just telling jokes is one of major reasons that the Laughter
Factory has thrived for 25 years. Life is an ever-changing picture. The
Laughter Factory wants its comedy to reflect this.
We are conscious of creating a space where established comics keep
mentoring the younger acts. This is what keeps the circuit alive. We want
somewhere comedians and comedy fans can come together and enjoy each
other.

Being based in Dubai has meant that we are not part of a big comedy scene
unlike the UK, Canada and US. This has been in some ways beneficial. We
don’t get caught up with the latest comedy fads. We focus totally on our
audiences and what makes them laugh”.

To celebrate their 25 th anniversary the Laughter Factory is bringing the
2015 winner of the highly acclaimed USA ‘Bob Hope Comedy Award’
Mike Marino, this will be a unique and rare treat for Dubai comedy fans.
Next on the bill, Mike Rice has to be one of the most popular Irish comics
in the US today. Spending several years playing some of the best clubs in
the states, Mike has both the charm and storytelling abilities of Irish stand-
up coupled with the slick performance style that is perfectly crafted in the
US.

Finally, back by popular demand one of America’s much sought after
headliners, Corey Michaelis is one of our most popular acts. Corey had an
epic run of shows a few years back. We cannot wait to hear about his latest
escapades.
Come, join us and let us celebrate 25 years of making not just you but
ourselves deliriously happy.
