Event Info

Have you ever wondered what stand-up comedy might be like in another language? Here’s your chance to find out. Sort-of.

It started out as a simple idea. While comedians perform in Welsh, the audience will hear an English translation. Live! Only a couple of minor technical hitches, and due to being blacklisted by every translator in the land, the translations will instead be provided… by the comedians themselves.

This anarchic and unpredictable show has continuously sold out at the Machynlleth and Aberystwyth Comedy Festivals since its launch in 2017. Utterly hilarious, you’ll laugh from start to finish – and almost certainly learn a lot about Welsh language and culture along the way.

Starring translator-turned-comedian Steffan Alun and a line-up of the Welsh language scene’s best acts.
