Eddie Izzard, Ross Noble and Tommy Tiernan at Laughs in the Park in St Albans

THREE comedy stars are taking to the great outdoors in July as Verulamium Park in St Albans hosts Laughs in the Park for the second year in succession.

From July 22 to 24, Eddie Izzard, Ross Noble and Tommy Tiernan will be appearing on the UK’s first purpose-built outdoor comedy stage.

It follows the success of the first Laughs in the Park event last September and once again this year there will be a full festival style area of food and drink outlets with each evening culminating in a firework display.

As well as the main event, there will be a BBC Comedy Presents stage from 4.30pm each day with the main stage show starting at 7pm and the fireworks at 10.25pm.
