Taking place over four days, the festival highlight is the Live At The Apollo-style Gala Show on the final night at Theatre Severn. Comedy fans can expect an evening of top-notch entertainment from six fantastic acts, and the first two have been announced…
As seen on Hypothetical (Dave), BBC New Comedy Awards (BBC), Mock The Week (BBC), The Last Leg (Channel 4), As Yet Untitled (Dave), Edinburgh Award nominated Josh Pugh will be appearing the festival following an extensive tour of the UK and Ireland. Pugh has written for several shows, including 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Never Mind, and many more. He hosts a podcast, Josh And Phil's Knowledge Club, with Phil Pagett. The Sunday Post described him as having ‘a gentle surrealness and a big dollop of hilarity.’
Scott is a stand-up comedian and writer who is 'without doubt live comedy’s best kept secret' according to The Evening Standard. He made his debut on Live at the Apollo in 2021 and has also appeared as a regular guest on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz, The Now Show, The Likely Dads and Elephant in the Room with Sarah Millican. During the lockdown of 2020, Scott pioneered the viral hit, Stand up from the Shed, a weekly topical live-streamed stand up show from his actual garden shed. The show achieved national coverage in the press, Sky News, BBC News and Five Live. In 2022 he was nominated as Best Club Comedian in the Chortle awards.
