Comedy is the new Rock N Roll
With a whole host of fantastic music and amazing family fun already announced for this year’s Camp Bestival, we are in a proper party mood for our 10th birthday bash, and very excited indeed to unveil laughs aplenty with our side splitting Big Top Sunday evening comedy line-up. Featuring three of the best names on the circuit right now there will be more than a touch of rock n roll swagger going down, plus we’ve got news of interactive fun when we put the kids in charge! And there are even more comedy names coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled for when we send in the clowns this July 27-30 at Lulworth Castle, Dorset. Commenting on her third Camp Bestival appearance, Kerry Godliman said: “Once again there’s a fantastic Big Top line-up of comedy at Camp Bestival, Reginald D Hunter is easily one of the best comedians around, Gary Delaney is a non-stop gag machine and hey I’m not too shabby, myself. And with loads more comics and clowns being announced soon, you won’t be stuck for a laugh at Lulworth Castle this July!” Frequently described as the coolest man in comedy, Reginald D Hunter has become an established headline act across the globe, so we are delighted that he will be headlining this year’s comedy for us. A big hitter on TV, Reginald is a regular on shows including Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo and QI. We’ll also have Mock the Week’s near the knuckle one-liner king Gary Delaney firing off cheeky schoolboy humour with infectious charm, and our compere will be the straight-talking and quick-witted Kerry Godliman, who is a Radio 4 regular, has appeared on Live at the Apollo a few times, Jack Dee’s Referendum HelpDesk, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala and was Hannah in Ricky Gervais comedy, Derek. And, ensuring there’s plenty of laughter on the cards for the kids too, we have new hit show Kidocracy, an interactive theatre show for children aged 6+, presented by Keith Farnan (Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow). Appearing as his alter ego, Brehon, an ancient Irish know-it-all, the show begins when children are told they are being given an island to rule. In just under an hour, they must elect leaders, write anthems, come up with rules that rock and deal with all sorts of crises because running the world isn’t just all fun, fun, fun, there’s stuff to be done as well!
