Comedy Carpet, Blackpool

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.

  • If you're of an older generation then this will tickle you (tickle stick not required). Plenty of fun, nostalgic quotes if you don't mind random people walking over them whilst trying to read. Loads of memories of classic phrases. A nice freebie in a very commercial environment. Nice location opposite Tower & plenty of space to sit around & enjoy the ambience.
  • I adore this. Shame too many idiots were getting in the want of the trams so they cut some of it away.
  • Brilliant place for reminiscing over old comedians and their jokes.
  • Good lightshow here for Lightpool festival. Also has famous names written on the ground that you can look at.
  • You have to be there on day time if you are in Blackpool loved this place.
