Dry Humour is the charity comedy event in support of Alcohol Concern and Alcohol Research UK. Join us on Friday 26th January 2018, at the Gate Arts Centre in Cardiff, for an evening with some big names from the world of comedy, featuring Lou Sanders, Bilal Zafar and more! Compère Rob Thomas will introduce a host of familiar faces and fantastic acts to keep you entertained.

As part of the annual Dry January charity campaign, which challenges all of us to take a month off the booze, the event will have an alcohol-free bar selling a variety of non-alcoholic refreshments. You don’t need to be taking part in Dry January to come along of course, so grab your tickets and enjoy an evening to remember without the morning after you’d rather forget!
