Best of ‘Ull

Some of Hull’s best comedy talent will be showcased at one of Hull Venue’s test events this summer.

Tickets are now on sale for The Best of ‘Ull which will take place on Friday, 27 July.

Emerging Talent

As well as testing the arena’s balcony seating, the event will act as a launch for the Hull Comedy Festival and showcase some of the emerging comedy talent from the city.

Jed Salisbury will host the event with performances from Steve Rimmer, Lois Mills, Jack Gleadow, Gary Jennison and David Smith. As a special treat there will be a headline set from Angelos Epithemiou.

Come and spend some time with Angelos Epithemiou as he guides us all through this difficult period in the history of our planet. Nothing is off the agenda, North Korea, Trump, Brexit. Angelos tackles it all head on! He also does jokes and there is an opportunity to have a sing along with him, should you play your cards right.

Jed Salisbury, Director of the festival and host for the evening, said:

It’s an absolute pleasure to be putting on a show at the Venue; as a director and performing I know that it’s going to be such a huge part of Hull, so it’s going to be amazing to be part of one of the first shows in the arena and get to showcase some of Hull’s rising comedy stars too.
