A day after we found out the line-up for the Book Festival, and as we continue to find out very little about Artsfest and nothing at all about the “digital festival“, the bill for the Birmingham Comedy Festival is live.
Personal highlights include Mark Steel, Richard Herring (although I’m pretty sure their tours would be coming round about now anyway) and Ted Chippington. “Meh”‘s include Jimmy Carr and Lee Evans.
Bizarre bookings include Chubby Spencer (a tribute to Chubby Brown), and Steve Lilly’s Comedy Classics – “large group portraits depicting famous comedy casts, including Dad’s Army, Only Fools And Horses, Carry On and Fawlty Towers. Limited edition prints and greetings cards are also available.”
And Ken Dodd.
