The enigmatic, off-the-wall comedian, Paul Taylor, is taking a break from his #Franglais tour to present this year’s Trending Comics Gala in Montreux, on Sunday, 3 December 2017!

With some of the finest comedians from around the world descending on Montreux to be part of this year’s international gala, this popular English show will showcase artists from the UK, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Iceland, Canada, Italy and more.

True to the essence of the Trending Comics brand, the diverse line-up of acts not only includes comedians from very disparate parts of the world but also those offering widely differing comedy styles.

The acts include: one of the most exciting comedians to emerge from the UK comedy circuit, the incredibly talented and award-winning comic, Ahir Shah; the hottest, upcoming South African act of Dutch origin and regular opening act for Trevor Noah, Schalk Bezuidenhout; the new Godfather of Italy’s burgeoning comedy scene, Francesco de Carlo; UAE’s King of Comedy, co-founder of Dubomedy, and international headliner, Ali Al Sayed; and Iceland’s biggest comedy export, Ari Eldjarn.
