Continuing its phenomenal reputation as one of the most celebrated and beloved weekends in the summer festival calendar, Standon Calling continues to serve up exciting and diverse names providing unmissable entertainment across the board. At every turn, Standon Calling is bringing the true festival experience to the fore, with their comedy programme emerging as one of the nation’s best over the past few years and an important slot for the fast-rising comedians of tomorrow.
Hosted at The Lawn – the epicentre of Standon Calling as the hub of talks, debates and alternative entertainment – an array of top-draw comedy names are confirmed to add some side-splitting scenes to the festival weekend, sitting right before the beginning of the acclaimed Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Headlining the comedy stage this year is Russell Kane, one of the most recognisable comedians of the past decade, whose appearances across the likes of Live At The Apollo, Celebrity Juice and more have captured the eyes of the nation with hilarious award-winning ease. Outspoken with his recent viral ‘Kaneings’ videos and fresh from sold-out shows around the globe, expect a packed tent when he arrives at Standon Calling this year. Panel show favourite Angela Barnes takes another headline slot, bringing the award-winning insights that have taken her across Radio 4 and Mock The Week amongst many others, while the multi-talented freestyle flows of Abandoman will bring hip-hop hilarity as one of the most unique comedians on the planet takes the stage.
With critics’ favourites Jen Brister building on her star turns across national TV, Sarah Keyworth who’s been scooping plaudits up and down the land as one of the fastest rising stars in British comedy, Amy Gledhill bringing her solo show to The Lawn, new favourite Jacob Hawley and the QI-featuring, Standon mainstay Cally Beaton also set to bring the laughs across the weekend.
