News: Comedians Lined Up For Festivals In 2021

Some of the UK's top comedians will be playing open air gigs in the summer of 2021.

John Bishop will be headlining seven shows also featuring Jason Manford, Katherine Ryan, Dara O Briain, James Acaster, Al Murray, Rob Beckett, Tom Davis, Fern Brady, Russell Kane, Desiree Burch and many more.

Jason Manford said: “I can’t wait to be able to get back out on the road again. Whilst it’s been great to get creative during lockdown, there’s nothing that compares to live comedy. After what’s been a testing year for all of us so far, it’ll be great to get up close and personal with audiences where we can all have a fun night and a big laugh together.”

Tom Davis said: “I’m double excited to be hosting the opening event to mark the return of live comedy! It will be my first time performing in a park since quitting Sunday league, hopefully I can bring the same amount of laughter to this as me playing football brought to many.”
