Top laughs! Camberley Comedy Festival
The Camberley Comedy Festival returns to Surrey on Sat 18 Sept with a line-up of funny-people guaranteed to make you laugh. Here's what to expect.
The Camberley Comedy Festival is back – after a year off due to Covid – for the second-ever festival. And it promises to go off with a bang with a slew of talented comics readying themselves to take the mic.
It’s taking place in a beautiful blackstar clothed marquee at the London Road Road Recreation Ground in Camberley on Sat 18 Sept from 6pm.
No stranger to live stand-up as well as making regular appearances on radio and the telly, Tom is this year’s compere. He’s has been performing live stand-up for the last 14 years – with four Edinburgh solo shows under his belt – and has been the host of his own TV, radio and online shows. The Guardian calls him ‘A mighty fine comic’, and according to The Sunday Times he has ‘looks, confidence, charm and great material; expect other comics to lynch him’.
One of Britain’s fastest-rising and most original comedians, Lou is best known for her live stand-up and appearances on a bunch of popular TV shows including Taskmaster – she was champion of series eight! – and QI. Her 2018 show Shame Pig got rave reviews and sold out both the Edinburgh Fringe and three runs at London’s Soho Theatre. Her next show, Say Hello To Your New Step-Mummy did pretty much the same – selling out Edinburgh Fringe and becoming her biggest-selling tour so far. Her comedy is funny and wise, with a dash of crazy energy. We’re in for some laugh-out-loud moments from this lady.
Smart, sharp and brilliantly astute, Kae Kurd is a young British-Kurdish stand up making a serious name for himself. He is recognised as one of the UK’s fastest rising comedy stars. His debut stand-up special Kurd Your Enthusiasm was a huge success receiving over 100K views when released on YouTube. And his brand new tour The Spoken Kurd, which launches in the autumn is already selling out shows.
British writer, actor and comedian, Pearman who – according to The Telegraph – ‘is fast evolving into one of the daftest and most delightful comedians on the fringe’. She’s an inventive performer, has bucketloads of charm and on her way to becoming a household name. She also appeared in Spencer Jones’ Bafta-nominated creation ‘The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk’ on the BBC.
