FURTHER HEADLINERS TO BE ANNOUNCED
Winner of Line-Up of the Year at the UK Festival Awards, Latitude returns for its ninth edition, taking place from Thursday 17 to Sunday 20 July 2014 in the stunning grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk.With no fewer than ten arts arenas, stages and spaces boasting the biggest names in comedy, theatre, dance, film, cabaret, literature and performance, Latitude is unrivalled for the breadth, depth and quality of its arts programming. 2014 is no different, offering a spectacular choice of major shows, star acts and ground breaking site-specific commissioned works.
Latitude’s Comedy line-up offers festival goers a rare opportunity to see some of the biggest names in the business outside of an arena setting, and the first chance to see the acts destined to make waves in Edinburgh later in the summer. Latitude is delighted to announce the first headliner will be the award-winning Dara O’Briain! Described by The Times as “one of the most entertaining stand-up comics in the land”, Dara presents many TV panel shows including Mock The Week, School of Hard Sums and Stargazing Live with Professor Brian Cox. Absurdist comedian with a gift for punning Milton Jones is a firm favourite on the live circuit and on BBC Radio 4, where his hit series Another Case of Milton Jones airs each week, he’ll be bringing his colourful shirts and celebrated one-liners to Latitude. Among the comedy stars is Al Murray, presenting his Saloon Show, where the nation’s favourite bar room philosopher will be joined by a host of special comedy, variety and music guests in a pop-up pub. Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner Tim Key will be at Latitude with his new show Single White Slut. Recently described by The Independent as ‘the British Seinfeld’, Josh Widdicombe is an observational stand-up who can find “the sparkle in the mundane” [The Guardian], co-host of topical chat show The Last Leg and XFM DJ. Trevor Noah is a South African comedian whose star is definitely on the ascent; fans recite his performances verbatim, share his clips globally and have joined him in their legions on social media. If you’ve missed him taking over the globe, catch him at Latitude this summer.
Josie Long is a true moral force among comedians, known just as much for her passionate engagement with social causes as for her intelligent and irreverent stand-up, she will be taking time out of writing a film, a radio series and a book this summer to appear at this year’s festival. The “warped wit” [Scotsman] of Canadian Katherine Ryan will be unleashed. With a formidable reputation on the live circuit and high profile TV appearances in numerous panel shows and the hit Showtime/BBC sit-com Episodes, she will delight audiences with the new show Glam Role Model. Self-styled ‘German Comedy Ambassador to Great Britain’ Henning Wehn, now a fixture on radio and TV panel shows for his mordant wit, also joins the bill to present his latest show Eins, Zwei DIY which is already selling out its London run before it goes to Edinburgh.
Rapper, comedian, actor, screenwriter and voiceover artist Doc Brown brings his rare warmth and versatility to Latitude as part of his return to stand-up, following the runaway success of his 2012 one-man show Unfamous. Veteran comedian and Edinburgh Festival regular Arthur Smith will revive his acclaimed show Arthur Smith Sings Leonard Cohen (Vol 2), a comical and musical success drawing on the themes of: dementia, enthusiasm, comedy and death. Acclaimed duo Cardinal Burns, who have scooped everything from BAFTAs to LAFTAs, are set to step up into comedy’s premier league this year with their second TV series on Channel 4.
The increasingly fertile field of sketch comedy will be well represented at Latitude this year. Fans of comic sketches can look forward to Luke Kempner’s The Only Way is Downton, a one-man show voicing the characters from the Abbey in a brilliant parody, 2013 Chortle Award winners and hit podcasters Pappy’s, the charmingly warped three-piece Wittank, critically-feted character comedy from Max and Ivan, the surreal Pajama Men’s “cartoons of the mind” [The Guardian] and five-piece comedy improv group The Noise Next Door, among many others.
Also joining the Comedy line-up across the festival will be Marcus Brigstocke & Andrew Maxwell, Seann Walsh, Tommy Tiernan, Jeremy Hardy, Miles Jupp, Felicity Ward, Glenn Wool, Kerry Godliman, Hannah Gadsby, Tiffany Stevenson, Rob Beckett, Romesh Ranganathan, Joe Lycett, Tom Rosenthal, Aisling Bea, Jared Christmas, John Robins, Nish Kumar, James Acaster, Roisin Conaty, Mike Wozniak, Eric Lampaert, Celia Pacqoula, Alfie Brown, Bobby Mair, Pat Cahill, Angela Barnes, Kwame Asante, Joseph Morpurgo, David Morgan, Johnny Pelham, Dane Baptiste, Gabby Best, Sarah Callaghan, The Sunday Assembly, Sara Pascoe, John Kearns, Liam Williams, Cariad Lloyd & Louise Ford & Holly Burn Character Comedy Show, McNeil & Pamphilon, Club Sol, Jamie Demetriou, Chortle Student Comedy Awards, Suzi Ruffell, Tania Edwards, Phil Wang, Ivo Graham and Harriet Kemsley.
