Stewart Lee, Josh Widdicombe and Tony Law among those announced for the five night festival
The Magners Greenwich Comedy Festival is one of the most prestigious comedy events in the UK, already boasting a stellar line-up featuring many of today's most-respected comedians performing over five nights, from the 24th - 28th September.
Set over two stages in the National Maritime Museum grounds, Big Top and Little Top, comedians set to perform at the festival include the acerbic Stewart Lee headlining the opening evening, with support from comic surrealist Tony Law and host Aisling Bea; Mark Thomas with his subversive and hilarious 100 Acts of Minor Dissent; David O'Doherty with toy keyboard in tow; Mock The Week regular Milton Jones headlining a stage above Seann Walsh and local lad Carl Donnelly; as well as Stephen K. Amos, Rich Hall, Shappi Khorsandi, Ardal O'Hanlon and Nina Conti.
There will also be live music on the Bandstand, bars, and gourmet street food to enjoy while surrounded by the striking Queen's House and National Maritime Museum.
Each night, the festival opens at 6pm with shows starting at 7:30pm.
