Blackpool's Comedy Carpet provides a fun place to get inside the craft of comedy. Created by artist Gordon Young (in collaboration with the Why Not Associates), this work of visual art displays legendary jokes, songs, and catchphrases in sentence form. The work pays homage to more than 1,000 comedians and writers, and spans across 2,200 sq m (23,680 sq ft). More than 160,000 granite letters, in a number of different typefaces, are embedded in concrete, displaying classic lines. The location provides plenty of bench seating, allowing you to enjoy the jokes and one-liners. Start your trip to Blackpool by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
Comedy Carpet reviews
I mean, it's alright. Something nice to walk over, spend five minutes reading the quotes I guess. Don't get me wrong, it's nice, but how can you review a floor? Grippy when it's dry, slippy when it's wet.
One of the new addition to a revamped Blackpool promenade, the carpet comedy original concept featuring all jokes and anecdotes of the famous British comedians. Big surface overlooking the sea and the Tower behind surrounded by benches.. Which attract a lot of skaters from all over England.. Definitely one the place to visit in Blackpool but sadly not known by visitors due to lack of publicity.
