With just over a month to go until Camp Bestival’s 10th birthday bash, we are delighted to announce even more comedy names joining the previously announced Reginal D Hunter, Gary Delaney and Kerry Godliman.
Featuring some of the fastest rising names on the comedy circuit right now, make sure you catch our cavalcade of clowns this July 27-30 at Lulworth Castle, Dorset. Camp Bestival comedy curator, Get Comedy’s Brett Vincent says: “I love booking the comedy for Camp Bestival, each year just gets better and better. From our headliner Reginald D. Hunter who’s been on nearly every major TV show in the UK and the States pushing his laid back social commentary and acute observations of the British psyche, to Gary Delaney who’s possibly one of the best joke writers in the country (and has awards to prove it) this year is no exception!
“At Camp Bestival were always proud to find you the stars of the future and this year we have a plethora of amazing talent from all over the world. Australian Ray Badran is one to catch if you like the surreal ramblings of Ross Noble. Jenny Bede who is already an internet star with over 50million views on social networks is one not to miss. Nico Yearwood from Barbados, Chris Betts from Canada, Yuriko Kotani from Japan, and Jake Lambert (Maidenhead) are definitely ones to watch, as well as Andy Field and Tom Ward, all of whom you will be seeing a lot more of on TV in the coming years. “Add in the true professionals Phil Nichol, Kerry Godliman & Pat Monahan and you’re in for a real treat this festival. Laugh hard and laugh long! - Nanu Nanu!"
Performing in our dedicated comedy tent in the Magic Meadow, there will be tales of media-storm madness from fast-rising Aussie comedy star Ray Badran who has been making a huge name for himself down under. Plus, we will have gut-busting good times with acclaimed actor, award winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician Phil Nichol.
And we will have even more hoopla and hilarity from Yuriko Kotani, Jenny Bede, Andy Field, Tom Lucy, Nico Yearwood, Patrick Monahan, Chris Betts, Jake Lambert, Tom Ward and Prince Abdi.
And, don’t forget, just for the kids we have new hit show Kidocracy, an interactive theatre show for children aged 6+. Featuring Keith Farnan (Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow) giving children an island to rule and asking them to elect leaders, write anthems, and come up with rules, it’s a definite must-see. We all might just learn something!
