This is the third Tringe and it has grown to become a hugely successful part of the comedy calendar. It is the 7th longest comedy festival in the world and acts include Jenny Éclair, Lucy Porter, Jo Caufield, Russell Kane, Sean Hughes, Paul Sinha and Mark Little.

It’s produced by Get Stuffed , a not-for-profit comedy club based in Tring that was formed about five years ago to bring London quality comedy to the Home counties while raising money for good causes. To date they’ve raised more than £50,000.
