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 27thJuly; and it promises to be udderly brilliant!

With less than a week to go until the Comedy Cow's massive Milton Keynes Comedy Festival on Saturday 27th July at Oakgrove Theatre, the team are delighted to have secured the incredibly talented Simon Brodkin, to add to their already incredible lineup of comedians.  Brodkin found fame as his alter ego Lee Nelson, and the loveable chav became his most notable character, although more recently he has found himself pranking some of the most significant people on the world stage including Sepp Blatter, Simon Cowell and Donald Trump, and gained huge notoriety for handing Theresa May her P45, almost as though he could see the future.

Now he's back on stage, but he's no longer hiding behind his characters, and he's let the mask slip to reveal a little bit more of what really matters to him.  Outrageously funny, Brodkin is a huge favourite at The Comedy Cow, and they are excited to welcome him back, alongside Lucy Porter, Rhys James, Stephen Bailey, Jo Caulfield and a host of other top comedians.

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.

‘Bossy Cow’ Ben Robinson, the man behind the festival, as well as the Comedy Cow’s regular nights at Stadium MK and MK11, says “We have seen the appetite for great comedy in Milton Keynes, and always enjoy such brilliant support.  We really wanted to put on something special to get the summer off to a fantastic start, so this is the biggest and best lineup we have ever put together, and we can’t wait.”

In between the comedy shows, local band ‘Ga$oline’ 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!
