The Laughing Ox Comedy Sessions to Tickle Galtres Parklands Festival 2014
A gaggle of sensationally funny stand-ups are set to storm the Little Top stage every evening at Galtres Parklands Festival 2014, in ‘The Laughing Ox presents...’ comedy sessions. Curated by punk poet Henry Raby, the sessions promise a nightly laugh riot from 9-11pm.
Performers lining up to tickle some ribs at the sessions including Geordie audience-baiter supreme Adam Hastings, artful impressionist Carl Gillespie, musical comic Eddie French, doyen of observational humour Farren Chandler, serial stand-up prize winner Francis Garrity, the brilliant and autobiographical Kahn Johnson, witty Cornish medievalist Mabel Slattery, hilarious comic character Sir Dickie Benson and one-man-one-liner-machine Simon D. Heaven. With yet more performers still to be announced, ‘The Laughing Ox presents...’ sessions look set to provide a big festival highlight for comedy fans.
Comedy programme manager Holly Bream comments: “This is the first year Galtres has taken control of the comedy line up and we are very excited with what we have planned.
“The Laughing Ox presents... will bring you all the best of comedy; impressions, interactive comedy, stand up and cerebral one-liners delivered with quirky charm.
“We have local and national comedians coming to the festival, each with their own unique performance style, so if you love comedy get yourself along to The Little Top each evening 9-11pm! Hope to see you there.”
