TRAMLINES festival has revealed its stellar comedy line-up for this year’s biggest festival to hit the region.
Phill Jupitus, Reginald D Hunter, Shappi Khorsandi, Andre Vincent, Alistair Barrie, Daniel Muggleton and Thomas Green will all be performing in Hillsborough Park between July 19 and 21.
American expat Reginald D Hunter is currently celebrating 20 years as a comedian living and performing in the UK with a huge 40-date national tour.
He’ll have audiences keeling over with his distinctive take on race, sexuality and politics.
Headlining on Sunday is stand-up comedian, actor and performance poet, Phil Jupitus. The former team captain of 19 years on TV music quiz show Never Mind the Buzzcocks, has a career-long connection with the music industry.
From touring universities supporting bands such as Billy Bragg, the Style Council and The Housemartins, to DJ-ing at Glastonbury, Jupitus is the perfect fit for Tramlines.
Shappi Khorsandi established a name for herself in 2006 with a sell-out Edinburgh show, Asylum Speaker. Khorsandi has since travelled to all corners of the globe and is a regular on TV panel shows.
Over on the four stages of music, the 11th edition of Tramlines will see headline performances from Two Door Cinema Club, Courteeners, Nile Rogers & Chic, Johnny Marr, Lewis Capaldi, Manic Street Preachers, Annie Mac, Tom Grennan, Rag N Bone Man and Doves.
There will also be an outdoor cinema, family-friendly area, and handpicked food and craft ales.
