Cosmic Comedy line-up announced
We're excited to reveal the 2019 belly-busting comedy headliners heading to Camp Bestival’s Big Top at Lulworth Castle, July 25th - 28th. Leading the laughs will be award-winning comedian and actor Omid Djalili who joins the inter-stellar festival bill taking over this summer, as well as funny-man Boothby Graffoe and comedy compere Andre Vincent, ensuring the best of British stand-up for all the family throughout the weekend. “I’m so pleased we finally got Omid to come to Camp Bestival. He’s exactly the kinda comic we need in our times who isn’t scared about breaking down stereotypes and always has us wetting ourselves, sometimes literally, with his keen eye and sharp tongue. Whack in Boothby Graffoe, whose work with Barenaked Ladies we love too, for a cracking double bill of side-splitting mirth and merriment.” Camp Bestival curator Rob da Bank Omid Djalili joins Camp Bestival off the back of his sold-out UK tour at the start of 2019, packed full of laugh-a-minute moments which will be sure to get everyone at the Castle cackling. Djalili has become a household name in the UK, thanks to stand-out features in hits such as Mamma Mia 2 and The Infidel. Boothby Graffoe will be bringing his best unique, quirky songs and stand-up sketches to Lulworth Castle, keeping kids and parents alike entertained, whilst Andre Vincent will be taking on MC duties and compering at the Big Top, keeping kids and parents in the festi-holiday spirit! They join a whole host of family fun and entertainment, with fun and frolics to keep everyone happy. Prepare to get grooving and singing along to music legends including Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Jess Glynne and The Human League, whilst little ones can enjoy out-of-this-world children’s entertainment from party people Big Fish Little Fish, Mr Tumble and kids TV favourites Sam & Mark. What’s more, immerse yourself with mouth-watering foodie fixes at this year’s Feast Collective, and enrich your mind with inspiring talks from the Literary Institute. Fancy something new?
