Summer Festival Guide

Grab yourself a cider in our magnificent marquee of merriment as some of the best stand-ups in the business take the mike from 7pm to 2am daily!
There’s so more to Green Man than the fantastic music - we’ve got three nights of brilliant comedy lined-up from an amazing array of acts including:
Tom Wrigglesworth – the national have-a-go-hero who rescued a little old lady from the jaws of Virgin train bureaucracy, only to be arrested for begging. The resulting sell-out show bagged him a prestigious Chortle award and his own BBC Radio 4 series.
Tony Law - an Edinburgh Festival favourite whose self-styled “acid-casualty” approach to stand-up is as laid-back as it is hilarious. The Canadian’s scorching jokes and incisive wit made him the perfect choice to support Stewart Lee on his recent UK tour.
Trevor Lock - among the most intelligent, original and exciting acts in comedy today. His ability to improvise whole routines with cleverly crafted wordplay and stream of consciousness ad-libbing has gained him a worldwide cult following.
Alistair Barrie - one of the most in-demand MCs on the international circuit. He hosted and helped organise Bye George, the comedians farewell to George W. Bush at London’s Southbank Centre, alongside Rory Bremner, Mark Thomas and Marcus Brigstocke.
Gary Delaney - a razor sharp comedian widely regarded as being the most quotable stand-ups on the circuit. His high-volume, high quality one-liners have left audiences reeling, from rowdy clubs to bizarre corporate gigs at the Labour Party Conference.
Ben Clark and Tom Parry - the two tallest members of acclaimed sketch group Pappy’s. Their unique brand of silly comedy has won rave reviews at Edinburgh, a Chortle award for Best Sketch Act and slots on BBC Radio 4 and Channel 4.
PLUS sets from Mike Wozniak, Helen Arney, Maeve Higgins, Mark Olver, Bec Hill, Tom Bell, Terry Saunders and many, many more yet to be announced.
