Falmouth's very own comedy festival has announced its first gig of 2024 with incomparable Kiri Pritchard-McLean.

Following the success of last year's super secret opening night gig, Kiri returns with the final, public version of her show, and tickets are now available on The Falmouth Cringe website

The Falmouth Cringe is the first comedy festival of its kind in the South West. It returns to Falmouth in 2024 for its third edition from July 4-7. 

Pritchard McLean’s show ‘Peacock’ will come to The Poly on Saturday, July 8 at 8pm. 

Having graced the stages of prestigious shows like ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘Have I Got News For You’, and ‘QI’, Kiri Pritchard-McLean is back with her funniest and most personal show to date.

Audiences can look forward to a joyous and uplifting show from a comedian celebrated for making "powerhouse stand-up from the thorniest of subjects" (The Guardian).
