Less ‘Summer of Love’ and More ‘Summer of Laughs’ at Comedy Cow Festival
The summer has arrived and the sun is shining, which can only mean one thing. It’s festival season. But mooove over Woodstock and the ‘Summer of Love’, the only festival worth worrying about in Milton Keynes this year is the Comedy Cow Festival, hosted for the very first time at Oakgrove Theatre on Saturday 27th July; and it promises to be udderly brilliant!
Eighteen of the hottest names on the circuit have been lined up to provide fantastic shows over four stages on one incredible day of comedy. ‘Mock the Week’ regulars Lucy Porter, Rhys James, Tiff Stevenson and Jo Caulfield, will be joined by ITV2 favourites Stephen Bailey and Matt Richardson, alongside a host of other top comedians guaranteed to keep you laughing from noon through till night time.
In between the comedy shows, local band ‘GaSoline’ will be on hand to keep you rocking out while you’re not rocking with laughter. And if they’re not enough to keep you refuelled, then refreshments from Taco Shack, Hilltop Catering, The Towcester Mill Brewery and Harefield Cider, will certainly hit the spot!
