MARCUS BRIGSTOCKE, RICH HALL, ROMESH RANGANATHAN, RUSSELL KANE AND SHAPPI KHORSANDI TO APPEAR AT BRITISH SUMMER TIME
British Summer Time at Hyde Park have announced an outstanding array of comedy acts on 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 25th June to accompany an already stellar line up of musical talent.

Josh Widdicombe, that guy from the TV comedy shows with the curly hair, is back on the road with a brand new tour. Since he's been away from stand up Josh has been working hard on other things, but don't worry: in his spare time he has found a lot of minor things to get annoyed about, and now he has a chance to talk about them on stage (in the form of jokes). If you have seen him before live or on TV and enjoyed yourself then this is the show for you. If you didn't like him then it probably isn't.
Since he was last on tour Josh's Channel 4 show The Last Leg has gone from strength to strength and been nominated for various awards including a British Comedy Award and a Broadcast Award, while finally winning one at the Royal Television Society Awards. He has also been seen on BBC Two's Mock the Week and QI, BBC One's Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News for You and ITV's The Jonathan Ross Show, amongst other stuff. If it is only his voice you like then he is now the host of BBC Radio 5 Live's legendary Saturday morning sport show Fighting Talk and The Josh Widdicombe Show on Xfm. Most excitingly of all he has also written and starred in his own sitcom, Josh, which will be broadcast on BBC Three in autumn. To be honest, it is going to be a blessed relief to get back to the relaxing world of live stand up.
Full details of tickets are here.
Russell Kane has returned to Melbourne for the first time since winning the Barry Award in 2011, receiving outstanding reviews, including a five star write-up from The Age.
'Some of the time he's just doing gags, while at others he becomes more philosophical... It's just one highlight in a show that demonstrates why Kane is among the top tier of modern stand-ups.'
Romesh Ranganathan and Seann Walsh will be regulars on ITV's Play to the Whistle, which starts this Saturday (11th April) at 9:20pm, with the first episode's guest Rob Beckett. Future series guests will also include Rob Beckett.
Hosted by Holly Willoughby, Play to the Whistle is a comedy entertainment show with sport at its heart.
Frank Lampard and Bradley Walsh will don their captain's armbands and will be joined by the very best global talent and the funniest comedians to play on their teams.
Seann Walsh will be acting as the series' comic umpire, and with teams using their encyclopaedic sporting knowledge, their funny bones or physical skills, each round is only completed at the sound of Holly's whistle.
