Lo and behold it’s Christmastime again, and with the mince pies and baby Jesuses in the windows comes another annual tradition: The Comedy Knights! Named Just4Laughs, because, you know, it’s the fourth edition, the show kicks off on 26 December 2016 for another round of hilarious, satirical, slightly-political, no-hoots-given sketches.

Of course, The Comedy Knights like to be second only to themselves, so they’ve gone and broken their own record by doubling the number of tickets sold by this point last year. So far, they’ve managed to move over 3,500 tickets (just in the pre-sale…) making The Comedy Knights’ Just4Laughs the fast-selling show of the Festive Season for the second year in a row. Wow.

The tickets are now actually on sale for the general public, with shows on every day between Monday 26 December 2016 and Sunday 8 January 2017, bar Saturday 31 December 2016 and Sunday 1 January… That’s bar the preposition not the noun.

“Ticketholders will get to experience the electric chemistry between some of Malta’s funniest and wackiest comedians, namely Sir Chris Dingli, Lady Pia Zammit, Sir Marc Cabourdin, Sir Thomas Camilleri, Lady Jo Caruana, Sir Colin Fitz, Sir Steve Hili and the latest edition to our menagerie: Lady Chantelle Micallef Grimaud,” says the founder of TAC Theatre and the director of Just4Laughs, Wesley Ellul.

“It’s been a crazy, train wreck of a year, both locally and internationally,” Wesley continues. “Our writers, comedians Chris Dingli and Steve Hili, really have it easy this year… I mean, between Trump, Brexit, the morning-after pill and the Paceville Masterplan, we’re set for an awesome round of laughs and mind-numbing revelations.”

“Did I mention they’re wacky?” Wesley concludes.

Right.
