More About Comedy - From War-time Music Halls to Stadium Tours
Stand-up comedy has been long established as one of Britain's most popular forms of live entertainment - the enduring popularity of comedy tickets should thus come as no surprise. Established in the 18th century in the country's music halls, the form enjoyed its first real spike in popularity during the Second World War, when soldiers would watch stand-up performers to keep their spirits up. Advances in broadcasting in the 1950s and '60s gave greater exposure to talent, and by the 1970s alternative routes to prominence were available to funnymen such as Working Men's Clubs. Soon comedy would be entering a real rock 'n' roll era, with names such as Billy Connolly, Victoria Wood and Jasper Carrott rising to huge stardom and comedy tickets surging in popularity.
Since then, many comedic trends have come and gone, but one thing has remained the same: the public's thirst for comedy tickets. From Jimmy Carr to Bill Bailey, Sarah Millican to Sandi Toksvig, there's an entertainer on the circuit to suit all tastes - and on StubHub!
