Shrewsbury International Comedy Festival has announced the final act for its flagship gala show at Theatre Severn this summer.

Due to take place on the evening of Sunday 14 July in a Live At The Apollo style format, the line up now includes Paul Smith, who will perform alongside Josh Pugh, Jack Gleadow, Janine Harouni, Scott Bennett and MC for the evening, Thanyia Moore.

Resident compere at Liverpool’s Hot Water Comedy Club and fresh off the back of selling out venues such as Liverpool’s M&S and London’s Wembley Arena, Paul Smith will have also staged his biggest performance to date in his home city by the time he reaches SICF with his latest tour, Pablo. Pablo has been described as Smith's biggest and funniest show yet, featuring a mix of his trademark audience interaction and hilarious true stories from everyday life. Audiences will experience jaw-aching, laugh out loud comedy that only he can deliver.

Comedians performing at the other festival venues in Shrewsbury such Albert & Co, Frankville, The Loft at The Old Post Office, Henry Tudor Inn, The Old Market Hall and Rad Beer include: Dom Hatton-Woods, Dave Twentyman, Dean Coughlin, Ignacio Lopez, Tez Ilyaz, Josh Jones, James Cook, Freddy Quinne, Jenny Hart, Michael Odewale, Rob Mulholland, Harriet Dyer and Michelle Shaughnessy.

Tickets for the SICF Gala Show on 14 July are £35.00 and available here.
