'Natural wit and friendly hospitality' to be found in Glasgow
Date Posted: 10/02/11
Comedy fans are being encouraged to book Glasgow hotels for an event which takes place in the city next month.
The Magners International Comedy Festival kicks off on Thursday March 17th for 25 days, and visitors have been given an idea of what to expect.
"Now in its ninth year, the festival has helped catapult the city onto the map as a destination for top entertainment. As cliched as it sounds, this year is bigger and better than ever before, with the festival boasting something to suit every budget, every taste and every age," said a spokesperson for Glasgow City Marketing Bureau.
The representative went on to say that Glaswegians are famous the world over for their "natural wit and friendly hospitality", which will be on show "throughout the year".
Across the 25-day festival there are around 400 shows, with 115,000 tickets available for comedy fans to snap up at over 50 venues.
