Comedy for Camp Bestival with Rufus Hound, Michael Winslow and more

More News

The UK's top family festival just got funnier…and there's comedy for kids too...

We all love a bit of a laugh do we not? Camp Bestival will always lift your spirits and make you laugh out loud but now they're getting serious and have booked the best that the comedy circuit has to offer. There's going to be  laughs aplenty for all ages in a side-splitting line-up of top drawer comics who will be joining the previously announced and rather wicked comedy headliner Jimmy Carr at Lulworth Castle this July.

“Once again Camp Bestival has a stellar line-up of comedians over the weekend from some of the best emerging talent on the comedy circuit to famous TV names and the beat-boxing noise maker legend that is Michael Winslow. We’re also very proud to be the only music festival this year and possibly ever to host the biggest face in comedy (literally) Jimmy Carr. We also have dedicated comedy shows for kids with the best kids comedy show at the Edinburgh Festival last year… The Adventurers Club and now firmly rooted resident at Camp Bestival – Comedy Club 4 Kids. My top picks would be… Benny Boot and Ian Stone on Friday, Rufus Hound hosting on Saturday, Andrew Maxwell followed by Early Edition and then Michael Winslow on the Sunday and of course Jimmy who is closing the Festival late Sunday night….”
Comedy Guru,  Brett Vincent

Police Academy legend and ‘Man of 10,000 Voices’, Michael Winslow will be wowing the crowds at this year’s Camp Bestival. An utter genius who does the seemingly impossible with just his voice, anyone who saw Michael at last year’s Camp Bestival knows they’re in for an unbelievable treat!

Cheryl Cole impersonator extraordinaire Rufus Hound who will be landing on the Jurassic coast to unleash his moustachioed comedy mayhem. Known for his turns on Celebrity Juice and Argumental, Rufus is a master of his art and one not to miss. There's going to be a high octane outing from Camp Bestival favourite Andrew Maxwell who knows something extremely funny about everything.

Those with a satirical bent will very pleased to know that the Early Edition will be returning to Camp Bestival once again. A live comedy panel show hosted by Marcus Brigstocke and Andre Vincent, The Early Edition tears into the tabloids, lambasts the broadsheets, ridicules the naysayers, unravels the spin and pooh-poohs the pomposity of headline print.

Also adding to the festival frivolities will be the edgy and provocative Ian Stone who was recently voted one of Britain’s top ten stand ups by the Independent, Ben Norris who you may have seen recently on Mock the Week, Andre Vincent who once opened for Bob Hope and played himself on Byker Grove and Benny Boot.

And there will be top turns from Joel Dommett who was a regular on E4’s Skins, Camp Bestival regular Eric Lampaert who is T4’s rising star of 2012, Paul McCaffrey, recently seen on Russell Howards Good News, George Egg with his oversized suitcase of props, ex-Labour Party stalker Matt Forde who currently has his own 5Live show.

There’s plenty of hilarity for the kids too, including Comedy Club 4 Kids with regular compere Tiernan Douieb which is back for the third year running. Cracking entertainment for the young’uns Comedy Club 4 Kids is comedians doing what they do best but without the rude bits! And brand new to Camp Bestival this year is The Adventurers Club with Tim Fitzhigham. The Adventurers Club is off on a trip doomed to failure. Make sure you catch this award winning show for an afternoon of sheer hilarious adventure!

Camp Bestival as always brings you some incredible music - this year from Happy Mondays, Hot Chip, Kool and the Gang, Chic featuring Nile Rodgers, Rolf Harris, Rizzle Kicks, Mr Tumble, The Gruffalo, Dick and Dom and Shrek the Musical plus arty escapades from The Tate, a literary whirlwind of talks, spoken word and poetry at the East Lulworth Literary Institute, amazing food and 100s of free things for kids to do.

There's still more got more marvellous treats to be announced for the UK's top family festival and tickets are selling like hot cakes so if you want to join in with this stunning fantasy festi-holiday make sure you get in there quick!

Camp Bestival -  26th to 29th July 2012 - Lulworth Castle, Dorset
