Ahead of his show that evening at Carriageworks Theatre we are delighted to welcome Ashley Blaker to launch this year’s Festival. He is the UK’s only Orthodox Jewish comedian. Described as ‘a Haredi Michael McIntyre’, he will shortly be touring Israel and then performing an all-new UK tour in 2017. His first stand-up tour – Ungefiltered –played to sell-out audiences the length and breadth of the UK and was seen by 5,500 people. Ashley is also a comedy writer and producer for radio and television and was responsible for first unleashing the comedy phenomenon Little Britain on the nation. His company, Black Hat Productions, is currently making several new series for BBC Radio 4.

Ashley will be speaking about the process of writing for comedy, the skills required and challenges faced
