In 2023 just over 1300 people attended the events raising £10,000 for SIFA Fireside.

The festival has raised over £100k for local and grassroots charities and put £120k into local food and drink since being founded in 2018.

The Birmingham launch will see contributions from local comedians and familiar faces including Russel Howard, Joe Lycett, Lindsay Santoro, Danny Clives, Andy White, Celya AB and James Cook.

Belly Laughs serves as a lucky dip comedian potluck. You might get a well-known comedian or a rising local star- and that’s part of the fun!
