Laugh and the world laughs with you

Well well, poor old Ed Sheeran took a lot of abuse over on social media last night. Actually he didn't because he wasn't on social media, he was busy headlining Glastonbury, but he came back to it this morning, and he even felt the need to wade in to confirm that his set was live, there was not backing track, it was all about the loop pedal.

And that made me remember a comedian that DD and I loved at Camp Bestival in 2015. Rob Deering is a comedian that used the loop pedal to the max! Explaining it to us, the innocent audience, and then using it, and his guitar to keep us in metaphorical stitches for half an hour or so. So when I thought loop pedal, I though COFFEEEE!

I can't wait to see what the comedy lineup will bring this year. As with music at festivals, where there are big names and well known bands, comedy too has plenty of 'must see' and 'famous' comedians, but often it's the ones I haven't heard of that make me laugh the most, maybe as the sets are so fresh and new (at least to me) maybe they truly are secret comedy gold, but whatever, I can't wait to hear some hilarious favourites along with finding some new rib tickling chuckles this year at Camp Bestival.



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 the 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, enjoy gut-busting good times with acclaimed actor, award winning comedian, producer, presenter, writer and musician Phil Nichol. And of course 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 Camp Bestival 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. Everyone might just learn something!
