There's Something Funny HAppening In NottingHAm- The Nottingham Comedy Festival 2011

Nottingham, hold onto your sides because they're in danger of splitting when the fabulous and fantastic feast of fun the Nottingham Comedy Festival hits the town from September 23rd to October 1st.

All kinds of comedy events, from stand-up and improvisation to plays, workshops, musical comedy and films will be happening in venues all around the city including The Glee Club, Jongleurs, The Royal Centre and Nottingham Playhouse, and here are our Nottingham Confidential Top Five Recommendations for the festival:

1. ISY SUTTIE After catching her show at Nottingham's Just The Tonic earlier this year, we can confidently and confidentially recommend Isy Suttie's live act. She's a stand-up, story-telling, guitar-strumming troubadour, she's from just down the road in Matlock and most importantly of all she's FUNNY. October 1st at Bunkers Hill courtesy of Magners Funhouse Comedy tickets £7 You can read our Nottingham Confidential interview with Isy Suttie here

2. SHAZIA MIRZA We're bigging up the girls this year with the world's premier Muslim stand-up Shazia Mirza who will be performing at Bunkers Hill on September 24th tickets £7
