Comedy Arena

Welcome to the biggest and best comedy festival in Britain positioned on the hill overlooking the luscious landscape of the Latitude site. The Comedy Arena is one of the biggest draws of the weekend; bursting at the seams with people as they sit back and enjoy the stellar stand up performances from the cream of the comedy circuit. A programme of the biggest names and the newest rising talent will ensure continuous laughter throughout the weekend.

This year Latitude is unveiling an incredible opportunity for any budding stand-up comic: Latitude New Act Of The Year hosted by the phenomenal new talent Jack Whitehall. Celebrating the next generation of comic entertainers, six of the nation’s most promising stars will be short-listed to take part in this prestigious prize. On Saturday morning at the festival, Whitehall will present each finalist who will then perform before the Latitude crowd and it will be down to the audience to choose the winner. Latitude’s New Act Of The Year will give the winner fantastic opportunities whilst unearthing and showcasing the very best of the up and coming talent in a thriving comedy scene.

At just twenty years old, Jack Whitehall has made a remarkable impact upon the comedy world. With a host of awards and an array of live appearances under his belt, this so-called ‘newcomer’ has hosted Celebrity Big Brother’s Big Mouth and appeared on The Sunday Night Project, 8 Out of 10 Cats, The World Stands Up and Ruddy Hell! It’s Harry and Paul. He was also crowned the youngest ever Winner of The Amused Moose New Act of the Year in 2007.

After dark, the fun and laughter continues late into the night with the ultimate feel-good pop-tastic party Guilty Pleasures. Forget your worries, shake off those inhibitions and throw back your head as you dance the hours away to the music you’ve never been so proud to admit you love. Old favourites, forgotten classics, cheesy anthems and pure pop gold are all lovingly embraced and adored. Dancers in animal outfits, cheerleaders, mascots and camp dance troupes in silver and purple lycra add to an infectious carnival atmosphere, the perfect escapism from normal life. Chicago, ELO, Queen and Dolly Parton; guitar solos, power ballads and even the conga; your guilty pleasures never sounded so good.
