The comedy extravaganza will start at 6pm on Thursday March 29 and run until April 2 at 6pm. To qualify for the coveted record there has to be a minimum of ten people in the audience at all times-so the venue is calling on all comedy fans to support the event.

Banbury audiences will be treated to a wide range of comedy from a star studded cast including full Edinburgh shows, 15 minute routines, comedy club sets, and more. From one liners to story tellers and slapstick, there really will be something for everyone.
