Swindon Comedy Festival 2008 

Famous acts set to stir up a storm in Swindon
 
Swindon's first ever comedy festival is set to take place this summer, with big names already confirmed.
 
Jimmy Carr comes to Swindon
What a Carr-acter!:
Jimmy set to be a sell-out
Funny man Jimmy Carr will be performing his usual satirical (and hilarious) comedy at the Oasis Leisure Centre on 30th June, as part of his 'Repeat Offender' tour.
 
Set to be a sell-out, you better get in there fast if you want to experience the wrath of TV's funny man!
 
Whilst Jimmy takes over at the Oasis, guests at the Wyvern Theatre will be entertained by gentle tales of human behaviour courtesy of the lovable Rabbi Lionel Blue.
 
'8 out of 10 Cats' team captain Sean Lock, makes his Wyvern debut fresh from the success of his hit BBC2 show, '15 Storeys High'.
 
Deborah Frances White comes to Swindon
Get lucky in love:
Deborah Frances-White 
shares her tips with Swindon
Deborah Frances White presents a light-hearted evening of helpful hints for the unlucky in love, with her innovative 'How to Get Almost Anyone to Sleep with You."
 
And with an abundance of success stories under her belt after a sell-out session in Edinburgh, singletons in Swindon had better watch out - there may be a few experts roaming in the town after this performance!
 
But it's not just single acts taking to the stage, with acts such as 'Kit and the Widow' and 'Topping and Butch' causing double-trouble at the Wyvern, and string trio Pluck combining music and comedy in 'The Specialists'. 
 
Something for the kids
 
Howard and Little Howard come to Swindon
Drawing in the crowds:
Howard Reid with his cartoon
mini-me, 'Little Howard'
Whilst you're enjoying the wonders of some of Britain's funniest acts, the kids can also be appreciating a more appropriate comedy.
 
With the successful comedian and cartoonist Howard Read and his mini-me sidekick Little Howard, and the innovative Burple Brothers who will be presenting 'The Great Big Comedy Song Show' - there's something for everyone.
