Headlining this year’s comedy bill at Hylands Park, in Chelmsford, Essex, and Weston Park, Staffordshire, are Frankie Boyle, Russell Kane, Seann Walsh, Shappi Khorsandi, Nick Helm and Gary Delaney.

Scottish funnyman Frankie Boyle will lead the comedy shenanigans in The Glee Club Comedy Tent over the weekend of Saturday, August 22 and Sunday, August 23 alongside fellow V Festival debutant and Essex boy Russell Kane.

The duo will headline alongside an array of comedy heavyweights guaranteed to bring some side-splitting humour to the popular fifth stage.

Seann Walsh, Shappi Khorsandi, Nick Helm and Gary Delaney will also be appearing at the festival sponsored by Virgin Media.

Russell Kane said: “‘I can’t believe I’m headlining the V Festival Glee Club Comedy Tent.

“I will celebrate afterwards by heading straight to the Dance Tent, and throwing myself around to techno music like a tribal chief beating a drum.”

Making her second appearance at V Festival, Shappi Khorsandi said: “Sadly, rock stardom didn’t happen for me so performing at V Festival’s Glee Club Comedy Tent is the very next best thing.”

Seann Walsh, who famously went to Hereford instead of Hertford for a comedy show last year, added: “I am looking forward to V Festival.

“However, I am not looking forward to the few days after it. I am both excited and terrified.”
