More star turns at Wells Comedy Festival

MORE names have been added to the line-up for this year’s Wells Comedy Festival.

Six venues around the city will host some of the biggest stars on the circuit when the event takes place from May 24-26.

Live at the Apollo’s Hal Cruttenden and multi-award-winning Radio 4 star Sarah Kendall are among those who have joined the bill for the fifth annual comedy festival.

They join recent additions Jarred Christmas – a Wells favourite, performing a solo show and his children’s show, The Mighty Kids Beatbox Comedy Show – Derek actor Brett Goldstein, one-man sketch collective Goose – who also teams up with troupe Gein’s Family Giftshop to form sketch supergroup Tarot – acclaimed stand-up Garrett Millerick, Borderline and Beat The Internet with John Robins’ star Sunil Patel and Comedians Cinema Club’s Matthew Highton.
