Quay Arts welcomes Bestival: Lost at Sea

Individuals looking for laughs and taking a trip to the Isle of Wight next month should check out the Bestival: Lost at Sea line-up that are performing at Quay Arts on September 3rd.

Acclaimed funny men Andrew Maxwell and Benny Boot will be delivering their unique styles of stand up for eager festivalgoers in the run-up to this year's global music event Bestival on September 5th to 8th.

It promises to be a great night out for fans of comedy, with the double bill providing the perfect entree to the week of fun and excitement that is Bestival.

Indeed, the Scotsman described Boot: "Probably one of the best joke writers in the country, some of the most imaginative, perverse and downright clever routines I've heard."

While, equally, the Times stated Maxwell has developed a style that is "fiercely funny and utterly invigorating".

He was recently nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award for his one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It delved into the issues of nationalism, the internet, drugs and the food industry and was warmly received by audiences at the world famous event.

Maxwell has made a range of TV appearances over recent years, including performances on such shows as John Bishop's Only Joking, Live At The Apollo, Dave's One Night Stand, the Live Edinburgh Comedy Marathon, Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week.

Both artists will be performing on the night from 20:00 BST, with tickets to the show open to over-18s only and costing £10 per person.

Meanwhile, this year's Bestival line-up really is shaping up to be one of the best to date, with performances from Sir Elton John, Snoop Dogg, Fatboy Slim, MIA, Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips, the Wu Tang Clan and many more world-famous artists.

Kicking off for four nights of music and fun from the 5th, Bestival is taking place at Robin Hill Country Park and tickets are still available.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801626905-ADNFCR
