Comedy Carpet, Blackpool

4.3
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. Plan a trip to Blackpool easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Nice place to walk,lot of sitting stones and benches, beware of seagulls, very aggressive if you have any food.
  • Amazing monument to comedians. Love the Morcambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper, Fawlty towers, Monty Python, Dads army andFather Ted references.
  • Fun little photo opportunity if your are a fan of British comedy. Hell in the wind.
  • The Comedy Carpet is packed full of classic jokes, one liners and sayings which make up the UK's comedy culture. Makes a good read when in Blackpool.
  • Nice place to take photos ! Freezing cold December day but we still enjoyed a walk along the beach front . Too cold to stand and read the comedy carpet but it made a nice feature .
