Birmingham's Craft Drink Festival Adds Legendary Comedy Club To Its Line-Up

The organisers of Birmingham’s new Craft Drink Festival have announced an exciting line-up for its Comedy Bung stage, hosted and curated by the legendary comedy club Just the Tonic.  

As well as tasting a range of craft drinks (including beer, cider, gin, whiskey, wine, tequila and brandy), visitors to the inaugural festival – which takes place 28 + 29 July at Birmingham’s NEC –  will get to watch intimate sets from stand-up’s biggest rising stars.

The diverse line-up of upcoming acts includes Tom Wrigglesworth, Jarred Christmas and Kiri Pritchard Mclean, as well as industry stalwarts like Sol Bernstein, Tom Bloom and Simon Brodkin (creator of Lee Nelson).

Running two sessions per day, the Comedy Bung is sponsored and curated by renowned comedy club, Just the Tonic, which has remained at the cutting-edge of UK comedy since it launched back in 1996. The full lineage of comedians who’ve appeared at the club is too long to list, but some of their biggest exports include: Bill Bailey, Jo Brand, Stewart Lee, Reginald D Hunter, Jack Dee, Sean Lock, Shappi Khorsandi and Frankie Boyle.

Needless to say, visitors are in safe hands!
