Bristol Comedy Garden: Ed Byrne, Aisling Bea, Suzi Ruffell, Stephen K Amos
The mighty Bristol Comedy Garden returns to Queen Square this July 3-7th with stand-up luminaries Stewart Lee and Sean Lock leading yet another outrageously good line-up performing at the Southwest’s favourite comedy extravaganza.
Kicking this year off in hilariously surreal style is the 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown team captain Sean Lock with the legendary Stewart Lee headlining a fantastic festival finale in the Big Top on the Sunday night, with a whole lot more enlightening entertainment in between. Don’t miss US stand-up sensation and star of Channel 4’s ‘Catastrophe’ Rob Delaney, the multi award-winning talents of Sara Pascoe, Mash Report host and Mock The Week regular Nish Kumar, the riotous storytelling of Royal Variety Performance star Tom Allen, and the raucously funny British Comedy Award winner Aisling Bea, Taskmaster stars Phil Wang and Lolly Adefope, observational master Ed Byrne, Alan Partridge star Tim Key, 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Rose Matafeo and fast-rising newcomers including Rosie Jones and Sarah Keyworth plus many more blisteringly good comedians.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
The master of observational comedy, Ed's many TV appearances over the years have included hosting Live At The Apollo and being a regular panellist on Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You, as well as various other new comedy shows including Miranda Harts Christmas Unwrapped. A sucker for a quiz, particular highlights for Ed have been taking part in Celebrity Mastermind and being a contestant on Celebrity Pointless. Ed is also a regular contributor to comedy and music shows on both BBC Radio 2 and 4 and 6 Music.
