Comedy Festival in Milton Keynes

Date Posted:25/06/2015

Comedy Festival Milton KeynesFollowing on from winning the award for the Best Small Comedy Club in the Midlands and East this March, The Comedy Cow are putting on a comedy festival, with the aim of attracting 300 people per day to see the very best in stand-up comedy this July (17th to 19th).

Milton Keynes Comedy Festival takes place over three days this July at Westbury Arts Centre, in Shenley Wood. You can experience a flavour of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival whilst saving yourself the journey to Scotland! With 4 rooms of comedy, including the barn and a Yurt, there will always be plenty going on to keep you entertained.

With a continuous schedule of comedy spread over four different rooms there will be plenty of choice as to what to see, and your entry wristband will allow you to dip in and out of the festival to fit around the rest of your weekend.

Friday night is the launch of the festival, and sees a standard comedy night format in the marquee. Richard Herring headlines with a full support cast of professional comedians. This is a night of world class comedy, and with the added festival feel promises to be one of the best comedy nights you will ever go to!

Taking to the main stage to ‘headline’ on Saturday 18th July is The Boy With Tape On His Face. He has performed to sell out audiences across the world and has performed his act for the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance. More recently he featured on the John Bishop Show on BBC1. Also on Saturday is a wide variety of other acts, from the multi-talented Bob Mills, to the glamourous musical comedian Jess Robinson.

Sunday is packed with some of the very best names on the comedy circuit, from Mock the Week Regular Gary Delaney, to the award winning cabaret act Rayguns Look Real Enough who will be bringing the festival to a close. BBC Radio 2 favourite Ian D Montfort will be bringing his new show to us, as will Irish comedian and star of Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Keith Farnan.

With over 40 comedians performing over the weekend this is a chance to really experience the very best in comedy talent on your doorstep. There will also be live music, a chill out area, along with a range of food and drink available for those times when you want to take a break from the comedy!

Tickets start at £12 for the Friday evening launch, up to £40 for a weekend ticket to cover Friday, Saturday and Sunday where there will be shows from 2:30pm to 11:30pm!
