Posted in Stand Up on June, 30 2006 8:42 AM

We have news of the line-ups for the Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds Festivals. No, not the bands - but the comedians!

Like all the best summer festivals these days, the Carling Weekend festival has a comedy tent. Over the years they've had some well-known names, and some that have gone on to be well-known names, so if you happen to be there it's worth taking in an act or two. You might be seeing them on TV in six months.

Friday 25th August at Reading has Alan Carr, Simon Anstell, Simon Evans, Adam Bloom, Matt Blaize, Ben Norris, Stephano Paulino and Steve Gribbin.

Saturday 26th August features Stewart Lee, Ben Hurley, Rob Rouse, Rick Right, Hugh Lennon, Jason John Whitehead, Markus Birdman, Jason Rouse and Rob Deering.
