Lincoln’s Comedy Festival is back this year, with some of the headliners already announced.

Starting October 6th, a host of comedians will appear at the Engine Shed and Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, including Stewart Lee, Milton Jones and Collins and Herring recording a special live podcast. The podcast will be available from iTunes after the show.

Stewart Lee, the “41st best man in standup”, according to Channel 4, has been a comedian since the beginning of the decade, three books and three DVDs on the shelves, as well as embarking on countless tours and recently his own BBC six-part comedy — ‘Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle’.

He is possibly most well know for his tour, “90s Comedians”, where he discusses religious implications of the controversial ‘Jerry Springer – The Opera’ show.

Milton Jones is best known for his work on radio¬†programs, such as BBC Radio 4, style of comedy- one liners involving puns. In 1996, he won the Perrier Comedy Award for ‘Best Newcomer’.

Tickets are on sale now from HMV or the Engine Shed. This is an over 16s event only.
