THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2009 The UK’s longest running comedy festival is hitting the road with a selection of top comedians. Join us again as we deliver this year’s freshest and funniest acts. Hailing from Canada, Stewart Francis is an internationally acclaimed stand-up. As seen on Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats & ITV1’s One Night Only. Kiwi Comic, Jarred Christmas, as seen on television’s Comedy Store, attacks audience reserve and decorum with high energy antics that make him unmissable. Carl Donnelly, winner of the 2006 Laughing Horse new act competition, the 2007 Chortle Award for best newcomer and the 2007 Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, has a confident, conversational style and childish sense of humour that has seen him storm clubs all over the country in double quick time! Holly Walsh, winner of Chortle Best Newcomer in 2008, produces fine gag after fine gag and has been likened to Milton Jones and Tim Vine. She has appeared in The Late Edition on BBC 4 and Radio 4’s The Now Show.
