Festival’s got lots of laughs

WAYNE The Weird, Laura Lexx and the slightly less exotically named Nick Page. These are the acts lighting up the Beacon Festival’s comedy stage tonight (Friday).

The two-day festival is taking place at Watlington Hill Farm, Christmas Common.

Not The Rolling Stones are tonight’s music headliners, with UK Foo Fighters Tribute topping the bill tomorrow.

But if it’s comedy you’re after, there is plenty to enjoy.

Billed as a “master of stupidity and nonchalance”, Wayne The Weird, can be seen performing regularly in comedy clubs up and down the country.



With a mix of stand-up comedy interspersed with mind-boggling magic tricks and the odd dash of crass stupidity, Mr Weird is a firm favourite with audiences.

Quirky yet natural, Laura Lexx is one of the most effortless comedians making a splash on the UK comedy scene. Hailed by GQ magazine as “one of the most delightful performers you’re ever likely to see”, her shows are never the same twice.

Nick Page used to front a proper show on the BBC and everything, but obviously messed that up through living like an idiot for most of his thirties.

He does voiceover work, radio, and has written articles and a book (currently with his publisher’s lawyers).

Rhod Gilbert called him “the best storyteller on the comedy circuit”.

Tickets for the festival are on sale at Watlington post office and online at www.beaconfestival.net
