Wales Millennium Centre and Steffan Alun Presents

Comedy Translates

8 October & 11 December 2020

Ffresh Cabaret Bar

Have you ever wondered what Standup Comedy might be like in another language? Now's your chance to find out. Sort of...

It started out as a simple idea. While comedians perform in Welsh, the audience will be provided with equipment to hear a live, English translation.

But there's a couple of minor technical hitches to consider...

Firstly, Welsh is a very different language with its own very different culture.

Secondly, comedians are a difficult, unprofessional bunch determined to make a translator’s life as difficult as possible.

And finally...due to being blacklisted by just about every translator in the land, the translations will be provided by other comedians.

This anarchic and unpredictable show has become a cult hit at the Machynlleth and Aberystwyth Comedy Festivals, selling every single ticket for every show since it launched three years ago.

Utterly hilarious, you’ll laugh from start to finish and learn a lot about the Welsh language and Welsh culture along the way.

Starring translator-turned-comedian Steffan Alun (a professional standup in two languages with TV, radio and five full runs at the Edinburgh Festival under his belt), plus a line-up of the Welsh language scene’s hottest acts including Phil Cooper, Dan Thomas, Eleri Morgan, Esyllt Sears, and more.

And you don't even need to speak Welsh to enjoy this event.

Join us for cocktails and nibbles from 6pm.
Card and contactless only please, no cash accepted.

Start time: 8pm
