About South Wales Comedy Festival 2023 - Closing Show

South Wales Comedy Festival 2023 comes to a close but not without a rip-roaring lineup of comedians to wrap things up in style!
The lineup includes...

Lightning fast choreography meets uber swift editing in a fantasmagorical collision of quality entertainment. An overload of velvet, sandals and multi-hued wool provides a startling accompaniment, the whole effect being that of a slim man and a fat man putting their bums in your face.

Headlining at venues from the Falklands to Ashby De La Zouch, they’ve circumnavigated the planet, spurting amusement in concentrated twenty minute bursts but now an hour show is gestating, due to arrive bloody and screaming at some point, if not slightly before.

If you like music and let’s face it, who doesn’t, you’ll like it. If you like silliness, middle aged men dancing and unsavoury acts, you’ll probably love it.

You should try it either way. See you there.

“Ridiculous - quite bonkers funniness”

“A runaway train of brazen daftness”

“A hell of a fine act”

“A thing of brilliance”

“A world class British variety act.
A masterclass. The best I’ve seen”

“The British masters of prop and pun comedy”

Harriet Dyer (as seen on The Russell Howard Hour) is a Cornish comedian, writer and mental health advocate known for her quirky, original and offbeat brand of comedy. She’s written for both seasons of Jon Richardson’s Channel Hopping and written and starred in Meet The Richardson’s.

She founded the multi award-winning mental health comedy show, ‘Barking Tales’ and her latest solo stand-up show ‘Trigger Warning’ won the Neurodiverse Representation Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It was one of the ‘must see’ shows of the festival, described as “incredible”, ‘hilarious” and “mesmerising” by audiences. She received 5-star reviews – “This is a fabulous hour from a delightful comedian with a sense of the joyful absurdity of life. Entirely charming” “We shouldn’t underestimate the importance of Harriet Dyer’s show”. One fan said “I came out changed and hopeful…I am in absolute awe”.

Prior to this she has had another three critically acclaimed solo shows at the Festival; two of which were featured on BBC Live At The Fringe. In 2017 she was part of the prestigious Big Value Showcase for Just The Tonic which is an established showcase of the best of the new comedic talent. In 2020 she published her debut book, ‘Bipolar Comedian’ and in 2023 her stand-up for Comedy Central Live will air.
