TICKETS were still available today as officials at the Doncaster Dome prepared to launch the Doncaster comedy festival.

Organisers of the five day event, which opens tonight at the Bawtry Road venue, confirmed fans will be able to pay on the door for all the shows, as things stand.

The festival, which is sponsored by Travel South Yorkshire, will see a number of well-known stand-up comedians including Dave Gorman and Omid Djalili performing.

The festival gets under way tonight with Les Gibson and Piff the Magic Dragon, with tickets still available on the door.

Tomorrow will see Kevin Precious in the Icebreakers Bar and Dan Antopolski in the Conference Room.

Friday will see Steve Hughes perform and Saturday will see two acts at the venue, with Creaky Knees Stories in the Conference Room and big name television comic Omid Djalili in the main hall.

The festival will be rounded off on Sunday with another big name from television, Dave Gorman, who will be in the main hall.

Sunday will also see Creaky Knees Stories return to the Conference Room to entertain younger audiences.

Michael Hart, interim chief executive said: “Comedy events are always popular at the Dome and we know that Doncastrians have a fantastic sense of humour.”
